Saint Gertrude the Great – November 16th

gertrude with heart of Jesus

Bodily and spiritual affliction are the surest sign of Divine predilection. Gratitude for suffering is a precious jewel for our heavenly crown… Man should firmly believe that God sends just that trail which is most beneficial for him. – Saint Gertrude the Great

As St. Gertrude was about to receive the Sacred Host, she asked O Lord, what gift are You going to grant me?”

And Jesus answered, The gift of My Whole Being with My Divine nature, as formerly my Virgin Mother received it.”
“When I give way to the kindness of My Heart,” said Christ to St. Gertrude, When I humble Myself in the Sacrament of Life to be united to a soul which is free from mortal sin, all those who dwell in heaven, on earth, and in Purgatory receive inestimable favors.”

PRAYER OF ST. GERTRUDE THE GREAT

OUR LORD TOLD ST. GERTRUDE THE GREAT THAT THE FOLLOWING PRAYER WOULD RELEASE 1000 SOULS FROM PURGATORY EACH TIME IT IS SAID. THE PRAYER WAS EXTENDED TO INCLUDE LIVING SINNERS AS WELL.

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.

“I understand that, each time we contemplate with desire and devotion the Host in which is hidden Christ’s Eucharistic Body, we increase our merits in heaven and secure special joys to be ours later in the beatific vision of God,”

– St. Gertrude
