Thanks to MJD:

Today is the feast of St. Nicholas of Tolentino, who had a great love for the Holy Souls. He would offer Mass, pray and do penance for them so they could more quickly enter Heaven. Because many Catholics have forgotten about the souls in Purgatory, except when November 2nd – All Souls Day – comes around, St. Nicholas can teach a valuable lesson.st-nicholas-of-tolentino-1465

Let us pray for our dearly departed loved ones today and ask St. Nicholas to remember them. Prayer is below.

Patronage:
Souls in Purgatory, animals, babies, boatmen, dying people, mariners, sailors, sick animals, watermen

Prayer to Saint Nicholas

O God, source of strength and courage, 
you gave your beloved preacher,
 Saint Nicholas of Tolentino, 
the conviction of faith to the very end.
  Grace us with the ability 
to translate your teaching into action, 
remain patient amid hardship,
 serve the poor and those who suffer, 
and live as your true and faithful
servants.
Saint Nicholas of Tolentino,  pray for us.

Prayer for the Deceased by Saint Nicholas

Lord, God of holiness and light. 
You do not allow any shadow of darkness or evil in your sight, 
and so in your mercy you grant to those who have left this world burdened with sin,
a time of purification, applying to them the spiritual treasurers of your holy Church.

Hear my prayer
and through the merits of Christ, 
the Blessed Virgin, the saints,
and all your faithful people 
bring to an end this time of waiting 
for our beloved dead, especially _____.

In your providence
you have chosen Saint Nicholas
 as a special intercessor 
on behalf of the departed.
Hear also his fervent prayer for those whom I recommend to you through his intercession.  Amen.

Thanks for the post. I pray for the poor souls every day. I wish more people did and not assume everyone is in heaven.
