Day 1:

Jesus, my Savior,
I have so often deserved to be cast into hell.
How great would be my suffering
if I were now cast away
and obliged to think that I
myself had caused my damnation.
I thank Thee for the patience
with which Thou hast endured me.
My God, I love Thee above all things
and I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee
because Thou art infinite goodness.
I will rather die than offend Thee again.
Grant me the grace of perseverance.
Have pity on me and at the same time
on those blessed souls suffering in Purgatory.
O Mary, Mother of God,
come to their assistance
with thy powerful intercession.

Say 1 Our Father…

Say 1 Hail Mary…

Blessed Souls, I have prayed for thee;

I pray Thee, moderate their sufferings;
shorten the time of their misery;
call them soon unto Thee in heaven,

and forever love Thee.
