Daily adopt a unknown dying soul

It is because of the fall of Adam and Eve that Original Sin has come into the world as a consequence for disobedience to the commands of God. Being that we are human beings with a fallen nature, we are attached to sin. However, it is by God’s Grace that we can avoid sin and near occasions of sin. It is Catholic dogma that the only spotless Humans to be purely immaculate and free of sin are both Our Lord Jesus Christ – being that He is God and cannot contradict His own nature since He is Almighty and Good – and Our Immaculate Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary.

It is at the very moment of our death that the devil and his minions tempt the soul to fall into sin so that the soul may descend into Hell for all eternity; therefore loosing all hope for salvation and also loosing the possibility of attaining Eternal Life and the Beatific Vision. “Moreover we define that according to the general disposition of God, the souls of those who die in actual mortal sin go down into hell immediately after death and there suffer the pain of hell.” (Encyclical “On the Beatific Vision of God” Issued by Pope Benedict XII in 1336).

What a aweful tragedy it is to be tempted, especially at death since the time on earth to save ones soul is absolutely over. The Catholic Church teaches that it is a spiritual work of mercy to pray for souls and their conversion so that they may be saved, especially for the souls in purgatory in whom are already saved but thirst for Heaven since there are not any prayers being said for them. So what can we do to pray for souls at the hour of their death so that they may not be tempted? I invite you to join me in the following prayer. You won’t regret it. Let’s not forget that some day we will die and we will need prayers for us at the hour of our death as well, for we cry out to Our Dearest Lady: “Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”


A Prayer for the Dying and a Special Soul
“O MOST MERCIFUL JESUS, lover of souls,

I beseech Thee, by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,

and by the sorrows of Thy Immaculate Mother,

wash clean in Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world

who are to die this day.
Remember most especially the soul I spiritually adopt

with the intention of entrusting him or her to Thy Shepherd’s care:

I beseech Thee for the grace to move this sinner, who is in

danger of going to Hell, to repent. I ask this because of my

trust in Thy great mercy.
If it should please Thy Majesty to send me a suffering this day

in exchange for the grace I ask for this soul, then, it, too,

shall please me very much, and I thank Thee, Most Sweet Jesus,

Shepherd and Lover of Souls; I thank Thee for this

opportunity to give mercy in thanksgiving for all the mercies

Thou hast shown me. Amen.
Heart of Jesus, once in agony, have mercy on the dying. Amen”

Let us all keep each other in prayer for salvation. The way is very narrow to Heaven, however, the way to Hell is very wide. Pray for me as well, dear friends, for the TAB is also a sinner. God Bless You!

  1. Beware of this art work, Christian. It does not depict Jesus Christ. It is loaded with hidden images. Notice the dead pig with cross eyes in the left sleeve and the little rat in the right one. Notice the devil horns in the right arm and the image of a dead baby in the left horn of the devil.

    In this image, you are staring right into the eyes of the devil…

    I could go on; but, I will leave it to you to find more everywhere…
