Here is a way to help the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Great benefits are conferred by the Sacred Wounds on the Holy Souls.
Promise of Our Lord to Sister Mary Martha Chambon:
‘The soul who during life has honoured and studied the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ and has offered them to the Eternal Father for the souls in Purgatory, will be accompanied at the moment of death by the Holy Virgin and the angels: and Our Lord on the Cross all brilliant in glory will receive her and crown her.”
Offer the following prayers for the relief of the Holy Souls in Purgatory
The Rosary of the Holy Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ also known as the Chaplet of Mercy
(May be said on the Rosary beads)
On the large beads: Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ to heal the wounds of our souls.
On the small beads: My Jesus, pardon and mercy through the merits of Thy Holy Wounds.
These two invocations were taught by Our Lord to Sister Mary Martha Chambon, deceased, in the Visitation of Chambery, France, March 21, 1907. The sister received from Our Lord a double “mission”, constantly to invoke the Holy Wounds herself, and to revive this devotion in the world.
Promise of Our Lord to Sister Mary Martha: “I will grant all that is asked of Me by the invocation of My Holy Wounds. You must spread the devotion.”
