Let us pray for the living and the dead

Let us pray for all our brothers and sisters on earth, especially for those souls most in need.

Pour out, Lord, Your blessings on the Father of Christendom, on my parents, my benefactors, my friends, and my enemies.
Protect all those whom You have given me as masters, both spiritual and temporal. Help the poor, the prisoners, the afflicted, the travelers, the sick and the dying. Convert the heretics and enlighten the infidels.
God of goodness and mercy, have pity also on the souls of the faithful who are in purgatory. Put an end to their sufferings, and give to those for whom I am obliged to pray, rest and eternal light. Amen.
