Our Lady of Purgatory

Reward given to a child for his generosity

St. Peter Damian, having lost his father and mother at an early age, fell into the hands of one of his brothers, who treated him in the most inhumane manner, not blushing to let him lack everything, even shoes and proper clothing. One day the child found a piece of money on his way. Think of his joy: he thought he had a treasure in his hand. What would he use it for? The scarcity in which he found himself suggested to him many projects; but, after he had thought it over, he decided to take it to a priest, so that he could offer the sacrifice of the mass for the souls in purgatory. Remarkably, from that moment on, his fortune changed completely. He was taken in by another of his brothers, who was of better character, and who had all the tenderness of a father for him. He made him study so that he became a famous person and a great saint; decorated with the purple, he was one of the firmest supporters of the Church. This is how a single mass, which he had celebrated at the cost of a slight privation, was the beginning of immense benefits for him.

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
