Joel 2:17 Between the porch and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep, and say, “Spare, O LORD, your people, and make not your heritage a reproach, with the nations ruling over them! Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?'”
“My beloved, am I deaf to the pleas of my people? I tell you I am not. Offer the sacrifice of the Mass for conversions. I tell you, even if I could turn away from your supplications, I could never turn away from the perfect sacrifice offered for souls. Let this perfect offering call down anew the mercy of your God who longs for all to be saved. My child, I have given you a great weapon against the enemy. Do not let it go unused, but let the Blood of my Son continue its work on earth through you. Do not delay! The time is short and many, many souls are in grave danger.”
Father, Son, and Spirit, I thank you for this timely reminder. In your mercy, multiply all our offerings, most especially the offering of the Mass, in the Divine Will, for the sake of the souls you love so much. Jesus we trust in you!
(Afterthought: As I was thinking about the best way to offer the most Masses for souls, this prayer came to my mind. It is St. Gertrude’s prayer for the souls in Purgatory, but it also includes prayers for the conversion of sinners. I added the parts in bold to the original prayer, begging St. Gertrude’s pardon. I’m sure she won’t mind.
Eternal Father, in the Divine Will, I offer you the most precious blood of your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, for those in my own home and within my own family and especially for the conversion of a great many sinners through the Immaculate Heart of our most Blessed Mother.
Thank you Jesus for multiplying the labor of the few for the good of the many as you did with the loaves and fishes! Your goodness and mercy are amazing, infinite, and beyond our comprehension. I offer you the gratitude of the Gloriana wrapped in the love of the Blessed Mother in thanks. Alleluia! Thanks be to God!
