      October 23 1979

      O GENTLEST HEART of Jesus ever
      present in the Blessed Sacrament
      ever consumed with burning love for
      the poor captive souls in Purgatory
      have mercy on the soul of Thy de-
      parted servant. Be not severe in Thy
      Judgement, But let some drops of Thy
      Precious Blood fall upon the devour-
      ing flames and do Thou O merciful
      Saviour send Thy angels to conduct
      Thy departed servant to a place of
      refreshment, light and peace.
      Amen.
      May the souls of all the faithful
      departed through the mercy of God
      rest in Peace. Amen.
