PRAY FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY

Begging the Lord for the redemption of souls who are in purgatory
or supporting them in other ways is a noble work of love
. 

          Saint Stanislaus Papczynski, Founder of the Congregation of Marian Fathers

Purgatory Board

You may want to use the Marian Fathers’ Purgatory Board to pray for a different group of departed souls each day.
There are some different categories of departed souls in all, and we, Marians post in our houses one category of souls to be remembered each day - going through all of them on a rotating basis.

1.    For the souls of all the faithful departed.

2.    For the souls of your departed parents and family.

3.    For the souls of your departed friends.

4.    For the souls that suffer the greatest torments.

5.    For the souls of those who died unexpectedly or without receiving the Holy Sacraments.

6.    For the souls of those who died in war.

7.    For the souls of those who died of epidemics or famine.

8.    For the souls that did not give proper honour to our Lord.

9.    For the souls that need most prayer.

10.  For the souls of those who persecuted you in your lifetime.

11.  For the souls of those who did not assist others in their need.

12.  For the souls of those who long lived without forgiving their enemies.

13.  For the souls of those who did not give proper honour to Our Lady.

15.  For the souls that suffer in purgatory because of you.

16.  For the souls of those who suffer for having engaged in sinful conversations.

18.  For the souls of those who received the Holy Sacraments rarely or with indifference.

19.  For the souls of those who prayed little.

20.  For the souls of those who suffer for giving bad example to others.

21.  For the souls of those that leave this world this very moment.

22.  For the souls that are in need of the Church’s prayer because they committed a sacrilege or showed disrespect toward           holy objects.

23.  For the souls that had a special devotion to the Most Holy Sacrament.

24.  For the souls that had a special devotion to the Immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.
