PRAYER FOR FINAL PERSEVERANCE AND THE GRACE OF A HAPPY DEATH

O Supreme and Eternal God, I thank Thee for creating me, redeeming me by Jesus Christ, making me a member of the Mystical Body of Christ and having waited for my repentance after so many sins.


PRAYER TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
TO OBTAIN THE GRACE OF A GOOD DEATH

O Jesus, Lord, God of goodness and Father of eternal mercies!  I humbly present myself before Thee with a contrite and humble heart, and I commend to Thee my last hour and what shall await me after it.

When my feet begin to become motionless, thus warning me that my end is near; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my hands begin to lose the sense of touch and, trembling, can no longer hold the Crucifix, letting it fall, to my grief, on my bed of pain; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my eyes, already blinded and making contortions for horror at death so near, fix in Thee their languid and dying looks; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my lips, cold and convulsive, pronounce for the last time Thy Holy and Adorable Name:  JESUS; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my face, pale and livid, causes pity and terror to those around me; and my hair, bathed with the sweat of death, becomes stiff, announcing that my end is near; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my ears, shut forever to the things of this world will hear the final sentence of my eternal destiny; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my imagination, troubled by horrible and frightful visions, becomes submersed in mortal anguish and when my spirit, troubled with the fear of Thy Justice at the remembrance of my iniquities, is struggling against the infernal enemy, the Devil, who will want to deprive me of hoping in Thy mercies and precipitate me in the horrors of despair; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my heart, weak and oppressed by the pains of sickness, shall be overtaken by the fear of death, fatigued and wearied by the efforts it has made against the enemies of my salvation; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When I will shed my last tears, a sign of my approaching death, O Lord! receive them as a sacrifice of expiation so that I may die a victim of penance; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my family, relatives and friends, standing around my bed, become terrified at seeing me in such a state and invoke Thy aid; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When, having lost the use of my senses, and the world is vanishing from my sight, I groan under the anguish of my last agony and the affliction of death; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When the last groans of my heart force my soul to leave my body, accept them, O Lord, as effects of a holy impatience to unite myself to Thee; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

When my departing soul goes forever from this world and leaves my body pale, cold, and lifeless, accept this as an act of homage which I render to Thy Divine Majesty; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.

Finally, when my soul comes before Thee and beholds for the time the splendor of Thy Majesty, do not cast it away from Thy presence; but rather deign to receive it into the bosom of Thy mercy, that I may eternally sing Thy Praises; then, Merciful Jesus, have pity on me.
O God, Who has condemned all to die, but has hidden the day and the hour, grant that I, passing all the days of my life in justice and holiness, may be able to merit to leave this world in Thy holy love.  Through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ may I live and reign with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost.  Amen.

Those who make this Act may also gain 1,000 Plenary Indulgences applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory each time they:

Those who make this Act surrender, on behalf of the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory, all of the satisfaction made to God by their good works, including whatever satisfaction may be offered for them by others during their life and after their death.  They may temporarily suspend the Heroic Act if they wish to gain a Plenary Indulgence for themselves, either at that time or at the moment of their death, or both, and they simply renew the Act by reciting it again.

In order to gain these indulgences, one must be in the State of Sanctifying Grace, perform the work required, and have the intention of gaining the indulgences.

Traditional Religious Habit of a Poor Clare Nun

A Poor Clare Nun, who had just died, appeared to her Abbess who was praying for her and told her:  “I went straight to Heaven, for, by means of this prayer, recited every evening, I paid all of my debts.”  Of course this does not and can not replace the Sacrament of Penance, but it is prudent and wise to use it nonetheless.



AN ACT OF CONTRITION

O my God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, because I love Thee above all things with my whole heart and soul.  I detest all of my sins because it was for them and His Love for me that Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, my Lord and my God, suffered, was crucified and died on the cross.

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee by my sins, faults, imperfections, negligences and carelessness Who art all good and deserving of all of my love.

I firmly resolve with the help of Thy Grace, to sin no more, to confess my sins, to do penance, to amend my life, to avoid all of the near occasions of sin, and always to give to Thee freely, liberally and generously what is of supererogation and perfection, not only in greater things, but especially in lesser things, so that I may gain beforehand Thy efficacious, superabundant, particular and special Graces and Helps so that I will always be victorious in resisting and overcoming all temptations of the world, the flesh and the devil and his followers.  Grant me those Graces and Helps needed so that my every thought, word and action may be done solely out of love for Thee, Who art Love.  Amen.



SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus, I believe that Thou art really present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I love Thee above all things and I desire to possess Thee within my Soul.  Since I am unable now to receive Thee Sacramentally, come at least Spiritually into my heart.  I embrace Thee as being already there, and I unite myself wholly to Thee; never, never permit me to be separated from Thee.  Amen.

 FAREWELL

Most loving Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament, with Thy permission and benediction, and thine, my beloved Mother, I now prepare to go to bed, but here I leave my heart.

The Memorare
 
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
