Come to me, all you that labour,
and are burdened, and I will
Take up my yoke upon you, and
learn of me, because I am meek,
and humble of heart: and you
shall find rest to your souls.
For my yoke is sweet and my
Matthew 11: 28-30
cf. Psalm 105 (104):3-4
If God be for us, who is against us? He that spared
not even his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
how hath he not also, with him, given us all things?
Who shall accuse against the elect of God? God that
justifieth. Who is he that shall condemn? Christ Jesus
that died, yea that is risen also again; who is at the
right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness?
or danger? or persecution? or the sword?
(As it is written: For thy sake we are put to death all
the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.)
But in all these things we overcome, because of him that
hath loved us.
For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor
principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to
come, nor might, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in
Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8: 31-39
Prayer of Saint Gertrude the Great
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy 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. Amen
Our Lord dictated this prayer to Saint Gertrude to release 1,000 Souls from Purgatory each time it is prayed
The feasts of All Saints and All Souls fall back to back to express
the Christian belief of the Communion of Saints. The Communion of
Saints is the union of all the faithful on earth (the Church Militant),
the saints in Heaven (the Church Triumphant) and the holy Souls in
Purgatory (the Church Suffering), with Jesus Christ as the Head.
They are bound together by a supernatural bond, and can help one
another. The Church Militant (those on earth still engaged in the
struggle to save their souls) can venerate the Church Triumphant,
and those saints can intercede with God for those still on earth.
Both the faithful on earth and the saints in heaven can pray for
the souls in Purgatory.
