Prayer from "The Raccolta", 1903, Imprimatur, p. 55. "AN OFFERING. Eternal Father, we offer thee the blood, the passion, and the death of Jesus Christ, the sorrows of Mary most holy, and of St. Joseph, in satisfaction for our sins, in aid of the holy souls in purgatory, for the needs of holy Mother Church, and for the conversion of sinners."
(His Holiness, Pope Pius IX., by an autograph rescript
April 30, 1860, granted to all the faithful who, with at least
contrite heart and devotion, shall say this prayer: An indulgence of one hundred days, once a day.)
