Prayer for the Deceased

As far as I know, no member of the the Sodality has yet gone to his eternal reward. But one benefit of belonging to a Catholic Sodality must be the prayers of ones co-sodalists, both in life and after death.

In the month of November, particularly, we pray for the deceased. Let us remember particularly all those who have served the Traditional Latin Mass, those who have been known to us, and also those who are unknown. Let us pray for deceased priests and bishops who have celebrated the Traditional Mass, in particular in the years from 1970 onwards, through whose dedication and apostolic work we still are able to attend and serve at the Mass of Ages. And for all those who have worked with devotion for the Traditional cause over the years.

Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Incline Thine ear, O Lord, unto our prayers, wherein we humbly pray Thee to show Thy mercy upon the souls of Thy servants whom Thou hast commanded to pass out of this world, that Thou wouldst place them in the region of peace and light, and bid them be partakers with Thy saints. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

May their souls, and souls of all the the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

Amen.

Pater, Ave and De Profundis.

Amen.

Pater, Ave and De Profundis.

For Tuesday.

O Lord God Almighty, I pray Thee, by the Precious Blood which Thy Divine Son Jesus shed in His bitter crowning with thorns, deliver the souls in purgatory, and in particular that one amongst them all which would be the last to depart out of these pains, that it may not tarry so long a time before it come to praise Thee in Thy glory and bless Thee for ever.

O Lord God Almighty, I pray Thee, by the Precious Blood which Thy Divine Son Jesus shed in the streets of Jerusalem when He carried the cross upon His sacred shoulders, deliver the souls in purgatory, and especially that soul which is richest in merits before Thee; that so, in that throne of glory which awaits it, it may magnify Thee and bless Thee for ever.

For Thursday.

O Lord God Almighty, I pray Thee by the Precious Body and Blood of Thy Divine Son Jesus, which He gave with His own Hand upon the eve of His Passion to His beloved apostles to be their meat and drink, and which He left to His whole Church to be a perpetual sacrifice and the life-giving food of His own faithful people, deliver the souls in purgatory, and especially that one which was most devoted to this Mystery of infinite love, that it may with the same Thy Divine Son, and with The Holy Spirit, ever praise Thee for Thy love therein in eternal glory.

For Saturday.

O Lord God Almighty, I beseech Thee, by the Precious Blood which gushed forth from the Side of Thy Divine Son Jesus, in the sight of, and to the extreme pain of his most holy Mother, deliver the souls in purgatory, and especially that one amongst them all which was the most devout to her; that it may soon attain unto Thy glory, there to praise Thee in her and her in Thee world without end. Amen.
