Rosary for
The Poor Souls in Purgatory

FIRST MYSTERY
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe we offer this mystery:
For our deceased parents and grandparents,   
For our deceased brothers and sisters and other near relatives,             
For our deceased godparents and sponsors of Confirmation,   
For our deceased spiritual and temporal benefactors,  
For our deceased friends and neighbours,        
For all deceased whom, love or duty, bids us to pray,   
For the deceased who have suffered disadvantage or harm through us,             
And for those who have offended us.
        
SECOND MYSTERY
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe we offer this mystery:

For those in purgatory whose release is near at hand,  
For those in purgatory who desire most to be united to Thee,  
For those in purgatory who endure the greatest sufferings,      
For those in purgatory whose release is most remote, 
For those in purgatory who are least remembered,      
And for those in purgatory who are most deserving on account of their services to the Church.
            
THIRD MYSTERY
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe we offer this mystery:

For the habitual sinners, who owe their salvation to a miracle of grace.
For the deceased of little faith, who neglected the frequent reception of the Sacraments,
For the deceased indolent who neglected to perform good works,
For the deceased tepid who devoted little time to prayer,  
For the deceased frivolous, who spent their time in idleness,
For the deceased, once spiritually blind, who now see their folly, 
For the deceased mighty, who are now powerless,
For the deceased poor who did not seek the treasures of heaven,
For the deceased rich, who are now the most destitute,
For those who strove for worldly riches and pleasures,
And for the worldly minded, who failed to use their wealth and talent for the service of God.

FOURTH MYSTERY
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe we offer this mystery:

For those in purgatory who witnessed the death of others, but would not think of their own,        
For those in purgatory who did not provide for the life hereafter,
For those in purgatory who as parents failed to watch over their children,
For those in purgatory who as superiors were not solicitous for the salvation of those entrusted to them,          
For those in purgatory whose sentence is severe because of the great things entrusted to them—the popes, kings, and rulers, bishops and their counsellors, teachers and spiritual advisors, priests and religious of the Catholic Church, defenders of the Holy Faith.
  
FIFTH MYSTERY
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe we offer this mystery:

For those in purgatory who died on the battlefield,       
For those in purgatory who fought for their country,    
For those in purgatory who were buried in the sea,      
For those in purgatory who died of apoplexy,  
For those in purgatory who died of heart attacks,          
For those in purgatory who suffered and died of cancer,           
For those in purgatory who died suddenly in accidents,
For those in purgatory  who died without the last rites of the Church,
For those who shall die within the next twenty-four hours,       
For our own poor souls when we shall have to appear before Thy judgment seat.


PRAYER
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them: For evermore with Thy Saints, because Thou art gracious.  May the prayer of Thy suppliant people, we beseech Thee, O Lord, benefit the souls of Thy departed servants and handmaids: that Thou mayest both deliver them from all their sins, and make them to be partakers of Thy redemption. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine on them. Amen.
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

PRAYER FOR THE APOSTOLATE
Virgin of Guadalupe, accompany all those who are promoting your mantle throughout the world and take into your immaculate and merciful hands their prayers of petition for the salvation of souls.  Lead them into the embrace of your beloved Son, Jesus so they may have the strength, courage and a Christ-like heart to do God’s Holy Will.  May their faith grow like a mustard seed.
