Jesus, Our Lord,
You spent the night before
Your Passion on the Mount of Olives,
in the Garden of Gethsemane.
In front of Your eyes
You saw all the sins of the world
a burden which crushed You
and which pressed blood out through Your pores.
The apostles slept and did
not have the strength
to keep watch with You
during this hardest of hours.
Only Your heavenly Father
was moved and sent an angel
in order to console and strengthen
You during Your mortal anguish.Lord, see our brothers and sisters
 in Purgatory.
They suffer more than a human
can while here on earth
and You wish us to be merciful toward
their anguish and distress.
You give us the chance
to do something for them,
to keep watch with them, to pray for them,
to make an offering on their behalf;
but most of all,
we can bring them the Holy Mass.
Yes, we may even send our Guardian Angel
so that he may in the Power of Your Blood
console and strengthen them.
How merciful God was with His Son
on the Mount of Olives,
and in this way He wishes us also to be
merciful toward the suffering Church in Purgatory.

Jesus, remember Your loneliness
on the Mount of Olives.
Remember how much good it did for You
when the Angel of Your heavenly Father
strengthened and supported You.
Teach us to be as merciful
and supportive as Your Father,
and fill the Poor Souls with the same consolation,
which You received
on the Mount of Olives.

Mary, Queen of the Angels,
have mercy toward
your suffering children in Purgatory.
Send them your angels to help them.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
Saint Gabriel the Archangel,
Saint Raphael the Archangel,
you nine choirs of Holy Angels,
you Seraphim and Cherubim,
you Thrones and Dominations,
Princes and Powers,
you Archangels and Angels,
we pray,
in the Name of God
and in the name of your Queen,
our heavenly Mother Mary,
go quickly and help our brothers
and sisters in Purgatory.
They suffer great anguish,
they thirst for the Eternal God
more than the stag thirsts for a spring's water.
Strengthen them and lead
them further on the path
to heavenly Fatherland.
