Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed
O 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 them.
Be not severe in Your judgments,
but let some drops of Your precious Blood
fall upon the devouring flames.
And, Merciful Saviour,
send your angels to conduct them
to a place of refreshment, light and peace.
