WAYS TO PRAY FOR THE HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY
• Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the intention of the Holy Souls.
• Sprinkle Holy Water on the ground: St. John Macias, a great friend of those in purgatory, would often sprinkle holy water on the ground for the spiritual benefit of the suffering souls.
• When passing by a cemetery, pray the short Eternal Rest prayer. This prayer carries a partial indulgence applicable to the poor souls.
• Eucharistic Adoration: visit the Blessed Sacrament to make acts of reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on behalf of those in purgatory.
• Sacrifices: practice small acts of self-denial throughout your day and offer these penances up for the poor souls.
• Repent of your offenses against God and go to Confession: Confessing your own sins makes your prayers for the souls of others more effective.
• Spread devotion to the Holy Souls: Make others aware of the great need these suffering souls have for our prayers.
Eternal Rest grant unto them, oh Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
