Wonderful woman and great mystic. Precursor of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I usually pray this for the souls in Purgatory.

Oh, how I love this wonderful saint! This prayer is prayed in morning and evening prayers with the occasional chaplet thrown in. It's a wonderful act of charity to pray for all the poor souls in purgatory! Dear Saint Gertrude please pray for us:~)

Thank you for the picture of St. Gertrude. I don't know much about her but she sounds like a very interesting woman.

Dear Micki,

thank you for the beautiful card and prayer of Saint Gertrude! I am so glad I have a card of her now after all these years. She is a great Saint and her "Life and Revelations" is a wonderful and inspiring book to read!

Meldelen - I join you in that prayer.....daily for me.

diddleymaz - Amen

Lana - I love it too...I bet those 1,000 daily souls released will pray for us also.

Fr. Larry - My heart is joyous knowing you might have found St. Gertrude today. I hope you can say her prayer to release those souls in Purgatory. How easy to do.

Ceci - Thank you for pointing out her book. I haven't read it but it's on my "to do" list.
