Covens Christian Wiccans  ► Articles  ► How to Pray a Special Rosary for the Souls in Purgatory
This rosary prayer is to aid the suffering souls in purgatory so they may soon find rest and peace in the solace in heaven.

  1. Before beginning say this prayer:

May the prayer of Your suppliant people, we beseech You, O Lord, benefit the souls of Your departed servants and handmaids, that You both deliver them from all their sins and make them partakers of Your redemption. Amen.

  • At the crucifix, begin with the Sign of the Cross and say:

V. O Lord, open my lips.

R. And I shall praise your name.

V. O God, come to my aid.

R. O Lord, make haste to help me.

V. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

R. As it was in the beginning

  • Now We Pray for Specific Souls in Purgatory:

O Jesus, You suffered and died that all mankind might be saved and brought to eternal happiness. Hear our pleas for further mercy on the souls of:

(Mention by name each soul; choose all those you wish to pray for: parents, grandparents or spouse, brothers and sisters and other near relatives, teachers, priests, convicts, cancer patients, and on and on, including those who have wronged you and those who were your enemies.)

Response to each name is: Jesus, have mercy!

  • Recite the Apostles Creed.

  • On the first large bead say an Our Father.

  • Followed by three Hail Marys.

  • On the ten small beads that follow prayten Hail Marys and pray the decades of the Sorrowful Mysteries.

  • Followed by one Glory Be Prayer .

  • Then the Fatima Prayer .

  • When you come to the large bead, announce the second respective mystery, look at a meditation aid then pray one Our Father .

  • After each decade we pray:

Lord, Jesus Christ, through Your five Holy Wounds and through all of Your Sacred Blood that You shed, we ask You to have mercy on the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and in particular on our parents, spouses, relatives, spiritual guides and benefactors. Complete the healing of their purification and let them enjoy and participate fully in Your Salvation. Amen.

  • Continue this pattern of announcing the mystery and praying a decade. Do this for the third, fourth and fifth mystery consecutively.

  • After the fifth and final decade has been prayed, after a Fatima Prayer and then a Hail Holy Queen .

  • Afterwards pray the following:

Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them with your Saints forever more, because You are gracious.

May the divine assistance remain always with us. And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen."

15.Now just as you began, end with the Sign of the Cross.
