Chaplet for Priests in Purgatory

From the beginning, the Church has honored the memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them, above all the Eucharistic sacrifice, so that, thus purified, they may attain the beatific vision of God. CCC 1032

A reader, Larry, was gracious enough to send me a chaplet for Priests in Purgatory after he read my post about it. It is too good not to share, especially since all souls day is coming up, though July is often noted as the month for Priests in Purgatory. Still, I feel compelled to print this now.

This prayer can be prayed with a specific type of Rosary made for the chaplet. I have adapted it, so you can pray it even if you do not have the Rosary.

CHAPLET FOR PRIESTS IN PURGATORY – Devotion of the 33 offerings of the Blood of Jesus

Oh, God, come to save me.

Lord come quickly to my aid.

Glory Be to the Father…..

Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of the faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and you shall renew the face of the earth.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in our struggle, so that we may be saved on the day of final judgment.

Pray THE CREED (holding Rosary Crucifix)

4 times pray – Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, pray for the souls of priests and religious brothers and sisters.

11 times pray – Eternal Father, we offer you the most Precious Blood of Jesus, for the souls of priests who in purgatory suffer the most and are the most abandoned.

Final Prayers

I. Oh Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal Priest, who during Your earthly life generously cared for every poor person who was afflicted and abandoned, I beg You, look with favor on the souls of priests in purgatory who suffer most atrociously and who are abandoned and forgotten by everyone. Look at how these Holy Souls, tormented by the voracity of the flames and with an agonizing voice plead for pity and help.

II. Oh most merciful heart of Jesus, who in the Garden of Olives, in the midst of bitter solitude, victim of most cruel spiritual torments and bloody agony, begged: “Father, if it is possible take this chalice away from Me! Yet let not Mine, but Your will be done.” By this, Your submission and painful passion and agony, I beg you to have pity on the Holy Souls for whom I am praying to You and to relieve their suffering and to console them in the midst of their abandonment, as Your Celestial Father consoled you by sending you an angel. Amen.

III. Our Lady of Suffrage, Mother of Mercy, we favorably invoke you for our own sake and for the sake of the souls in purgatory. I would like to escape from that tremendous prison, by living a just life, avoiding sin, and doing everything with the fervor of a holy soul. But what can I do, without the help of heaven?

Dear Mother, cast your glance upon me and obtain for the grace that the last day of my mortal life may be the first day that I will begin to enjoy the glories of heaven. Hope and Mother of the afflicted, run to the aid of those in purgatory. Be merciful towards my relatives, my friends, my benefactors, the souls who love Jesus and who love you and toward the abandoned souls.

Oh Mary, by the Cross on which Jesus died, by the Most Precious Blood with which he redeemed us, by the chalice which every day is offered up to the Eternal Father during the Mass, obtain grace and liberation for all of the souls in purgatory. Listen to the sighs of your daughters in purgatory and opening the doors of this painful prison, let them all ascend into Heaven with you today. Amen. 3 Hail Mary’s – Our Lady of Suffrage, pray for us and the souls in purgatory. Eternal Rest grant unto them, oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen.

By means of this pious practice, apart from bringing immediate relief to priests who are suffering in purgatory singular graces may be obtained for those who pray it, and marvelous conversions may come about among sinners. More lukewarm Christians may begin to live the faith with new fervor. Priests may become zealous apostles, physical illness has often been healed, and suffering lightened by means of this joyous resignation to the Divine Will and lastly, the soul will begin to desire a superior form of perfection all within a very short time.

A holy soul said the following: “You the living can do everything for us, and we can do everything for you. It is an exchange of prayers.”

    I gave been praying this for years. It is a beautiful chaplet.

  2. Brother Augustine says:

    This is very beautiful and important. Did you know that the Church also has Religious Brothers? I hope someone will be praying to release us from Purgatory some day. We are the forgotten vocation. Bro. Augustine

    • I will add praying for religious brothers. I will adapt the chaplet – also because not all Sisters are nuns. Nun means cloistered some sisters are not cloistered. The chaplet should include all of you. God Bless you in all you do.

    • Julie Greer says:

      Brother Augustine, My husband and I pray for you, living consecrated brothers, every Tuesday and Friday. And the souls of deceased consecrated brothers on Saturdays, today,
      in fact ☺️🙏🏼.

      We pray in the Divine Will meaning we ask that His Divine Will be perfectly accomplished in the lives of every consecrated soul, from the beginning until the last one to be born, in other words, past, present, and to come.
      We offer our sliver of the cross along with Jesus to this effect. We have been doing this for about 7years. I am disabled with chronic pain and my spouse is my caregiver. I am so happy to meet you and will pray for you by name. May God bless your tenderness towards these deceased consecrated holy souls. May the holy angels come to greet you, at the hour of your death In return for your kindness.
