The 33 souls freed from Purgatory on Good Friday represent the years of Jesus’ life on earth.
In addition to indulgences and Masses in suffrage for our deceased, there are special prayers that help us free the souls of our loved ones, from the penalties of Purgatory. There are specific times when the following prayers are most effective.
The Friday of Lent, in fact, is the day when more souls from Purgatory can be freed. They need our support, let’s never forget it. Let us therefore create, with the power of our prayer, that indissoluble bond that makes us all participants in the Communion of Saints.
Lenten Prayer to be said in front of the cross: “I adore you, holy cross” It is recited 33 times on Good Friday, to free 33 souls from Purgatory. Also it is recited 5 times to free 5 souls on November 2 and December 25. And then every Friday through out the year to free 50 souls “I adore you, precious Cross , who with the venerable limbs of my Lord Jesus Christ were adorned and with his precious Tinted Blood . I adore you my God, placed on that Cross for my sake. Amen.”
