Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever presents in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory have mercy on the soul of Thy departed servant. Be not severe in Thy judgment but let some drops of Thy precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames, and do Thou O merciful Savior send Thy angels to conduct Thy departed servant to a place of refreshment, light, and peace. Amen. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.
