A fervent Christian from Paris, very zealous for the relief of the faithful departed, was working for the conversion of an old man who was dangerously ill; he had exhausted all his exhortations and prayers to urge him to settle the affairs of his conscience and to receive the sacraments of the Church. The thought came to him to interest the souls in purgatory in the salvation of this hardened moribund. He undertook to have a certain number of masses said for the deliverance of the most neglected soul, on the condition that this soul in turn would take it upon itself to obtain for the sick man the grace of repentance. The same day, this poor sinner, so close to eternal loss, asked to see a priest; he fulfilled the duties of a good Christian; and, a short time later, he died in the sentiments of the most sincere penitence.
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.
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.
My Jesus, forgiveness and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
