"Oh, my friends, let us pray much, and let us obtain many prayers from others, for the poor dead; the good God will render us back the good we do to them a hundred fold. Ah, if every one knew how useful this devotion to the holy souls in Purgatory is to those who practice it, they would not be forgotten so often; the good God regards all that we do for them as if it were done to Himself."
-- Saint John Vianney
For a Deceased Pope
O God, by whose inscrutable appointment Thy servant N. (here express his name) was numbered among the Chief Bishops:grant, we beseech Thee, that he, who was Vicar of Thine Only-begotten Son on earth, may receive a place among Thy holy Pontiffs who have entered into everlasting blessedness. Amen
