A Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory

O most gentle Heart of Jesus,
ever present in the Blessed Sacrament,
ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory,
have mercy on the souls of Thy departed servants.
Be not severe in Thy judgments,
but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames.
And do Thou, O merciful Saviour,
send Thy holy angels to conduct them to a place of refreshment, light and peace.
