St. Gertrude and Her Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory

Once, just after St. Gertrude had received Communion, she made an offering of the Blessed Sacrament that had just been given her. She prayed that it be of aid to the souls in Purgatory. She then was allowed to see great benefits falling to these souls.

St. Gertrude was amazed and inquired how this could be as she was so unworthy a recipient. The Lord communicated to her that when he visits someone, in the Eucharist, who is free of mortal sin, great benefits are accorded to all in Heaven, on earth or in Purgatory.
