Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great

A 3.5" x 5.5" prayer card, 3¢ ea.

This card reflects the prayer and revelations of Our Lord to St. Gertrude as given in
Fr. O'Sullivan's booklet Read Me or Rue It which has the approval of
D. Manuel Goncalves Cerejeira, Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, Portugal (1929 - 1971) – March 4, 1936.
(Please note: Promises to free one or more souls from Purgatory by the recitation
of some prayer is prohibited by the Church – Pope Leo XIII  "Acts of the Holy See" ).
We made corrections to the card (Jan. 2012) when it was brought to our
attention that M. Cardinal Pahiarca did not exist, to specify a number of souls
(e.g. 1,000) is prohibited and that the revelation and prayer had been altered.

Prayer of
St. Gertrude the Great

"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most Precious Blood of Jesus, with all the Masses being said all over the world this day, for the Souls in Purgatory."

Our Lord showed St. Gertrude a vast number of souls leaving Purgatory and going to Heaven as a result of this prayer, which the Saint was accustomed to say frequently during the day.

Taken from the booklet Read Me or Rue It by Fr. Paul O’Sullivan which has the approval of the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, Portugal – March 4, 1936.


St. Gertrude's life was the mystic life of the Cloister – a Benedictine nun. She meditated on the Passion of Christ, which many times brought a flood of tears to her eyes. She did many penances and Our Lord appeared to her many times. She had a tender love for the Blessed Virgin and was very devoted to the suffering souls in Purgatory. She died in 1334. Her feast day is November 16th.

The Holy Souls Will Repay Us
A Thousand Times Over
Now who can be in more urgent need of our charity than the souls in Purgatory? What hunger, or thirst, or dire sufferings on Earth can compare to their dreadful torments? Neither the poor, nor the sick, nor the suffering, we see around us, have such an urgent need of our help. Yet we find many good-hearted people who interest themselves in every other type of suffering, but alas! scarcely one who works for the Holy Souls.
Who can have more claim on us? Among them too, there may be our mothers and fathers, our friends and near of kin.
When they are finally released from their pains and enjoy the beatitude of Heaven, far from forgetting their friends on earth, their gratitude knows no bounds. Prostrate before the Throne of God, they never cease to pray for those who helped them. By their prayers they shield their friends from many dangers and protect them from the evils that threaten them.
To promote charity toward the poor souls order and distribute large quantities of these cards.
To have a better understanding of Purgatory and the terrible sufferings of the poor souls, order Purgatory Explained, an excellent book of 427 pages. We offer an excellent 38 page booklet on Purgatory entitled Read Me or Rue It by Fr. Paul O'Sullivan. Visit our Store for details.
