Special Prayer — Day 2

O most merciful Lord, You Who has always shown mercy upon those who invoke Your protection, I prostrate myself before You and humbly ask the liberation of the Holy Souls in Purgatory, especially of those for whom I offer this novena, through the merits of our Mother who stood by Your Son during His agony on the cross.

May Your servants and handmaids’ suffering in the place of purgation, deserve to receive the indulgences for the remission of punishments due to their sins, so that in due time they may merit to enter Your kingdom of justice and love.  I also beg of You to grant my petition in this novena if it be for Your greater glory and the salvation of souls.  Amen
