All Souls Day
Prayer for the Dead--St. Alphonsus Ligouri
My God! I recommend to Thee the souls of my relations, my benefactors, my friends, and my enemies, and of those who are in purgatory on my account.
I recommend to Thee the souls of evangelical laborers, of religious and priests, and especially of those who had charge of my soul.
I recommend to Thee the souls of those who were most devout to the passion of Our Lord, to the Blessed Sacrament, to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the souls who are most abandoned, those who suffer most, and those who are nearest to the entrance into paradise.
Eternal rest give to them, O Lord; and let perpeptual light shine upon them.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
And may the divine assistance always remain with us and bring us to life everlasting.
