Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

Our Lord dictated the following prayer to St. Gertrude the Great to release 1,000 Souls from Purgatory each times it is said:

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy 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, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.


St. Gertrude the Great 
St. Gertrude the Great Abbess
From these sources we learn that St. Teresa of Avila "chose her as her model and guide" and " sought her intercessory prayer often."
"Look at my heart,
and it will be your
temple."
~St. Gertrude

St. Hubert: Feast Day, November 3

After seeing The Cross between the antlers of a deer he was about to kill and at the same moment hearing the voice of Jesus begging him to repent, St. Hubert returned to the faith, gave up hunting and became a holy priest.  Why he was made patron saint of hunters is a mystery to me! 
On Nov 3 his feast day, in 
A Year of  Prayer, I found this Prayer to St. Hubertus
Great St. Hubert, you were passionate about hunting, but when touched by Divine Grace, you put down your bow and took up the collar of Priesthood. Known for your miracles and the conversion of hundreds, you convinced others to worship and glorify Our Lord.
Moved by your example, I implore your help. I ask for the Grace to follow in your footsteps and become a passionate disciple of Christ. Amen.
