Today is the Commemoration of
the Faithfully Departed (All Souls Day), as November 2nd fell on a Sunday.
Our Lord told St. Gertrude
the Great that the following prayer would release 1000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said:
"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen."
"Purgatory" by Fr. François Schouppe, Imprimatur 1893
"The pious reader cannot fail to have his faith nourished and strengthened after reading a chapter of this book; and realising
how much help and comfort he can bring to the poor souls, his charity will prompt him to come to their assistance and rescue. Their cries, wafted hither on the wings of faith from the shore of eternity, will not appeal to him
in vain. A new interest will spring up within him for that realm of pain yet also of hope, where those not wholly pure are cleansed and prepared for everlasting joys." (From the Translator's Preface, p. 16)

Fr. Paul O'Sullivan, Imprimatur 1936
