Our Lady Of Lourdes Holds A Six Decade Rosary

She appeared to Bernadette Soubrious, a 14 year old peasant girl. If your church has a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes, count the Rosary decades on the Rosary the Blessed Mother is holding! We have counted six decades rosary on every statue so far. 

How would you offer the sixth decade for the Poor Souls?  Announce the sixth decade for the Poor Souls, pause for a minute to remember your deceased family, friends or enemies, then say the decade as you normally would.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come;

thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee!

Blessed art thou among women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.

Please remember the Poor Souls in Purgatory especially:__________. (

– loved one’s name

– friend’s name

– enemies’ name)

The Blessed Mother cares for the Poor Souls because She knows they will be going home to Heaven.  Whenever she visits Purgatory, there is calm and peace around the Poor Souls because of Her Presence.

The more you pray for the Poor Souls, the more they will pray for you.  Once in Heaven, the Poor Souls can offer much stronger prayers for you!  People offering to pray for you is nice, but the Poor Souls praying for you has power and love and mercy and everything else we need!
