Merciful Father we join our prayers with Mary’s prayer intentions
for all those whom Her Son Jesus has chosen and consecrated in
His Name, and that the UNITY between Jesus and His Priests
[and also His Shepherds] may be all the stronger; that they may
be one.*

Adoration Prayer
Spring 1917
“Most Holy Trinity, I adore You! My God, my God, I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament!”

Our Lord dictated the following prayer to Saint Gertrude the Great to release 1,000 Souls from Purgatory each time it is said.

Eternal Father, I offer You the Most Precious Blood of Your Divine Son,
Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all
the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the
Universal Church, those in my own home and within my family.

May the Blessing of Our Lord Jesus Christ precede you, be with you now and follow you in all you do on behalf of Our Father’s Kingdom. May Our Lord Sign and Seal you and all those you intercede for with the Mark of His Most Precious Cross.*
