Rorate Caeli

Pray for the Pope through the Dead

The following prayer, penned by a very holy and learned priest of the Rorate Caeli Purgatorial Society, calls on all certain members of the Church Suffering – as well as the Church Triumphant -- to pray and intercede for him that he may lead the true restoration of the Traditional Latin Mass and liturgy. 

Please, pray now, and pray fervently:

"O Mother of Sorrows, as you held the Body and Blood of your Divine Son upon your breast as His Soul went down among the dead to free them and grant them the Blessed Vision of His Divinity, so assist Holy Church as she bears this same Body and Blood on her altars and entreat your Son to descend again among the dead and free the souls of departed popes and prelates, and the souls of the departed parents, Jesuit brethren, friends, and benefactors of Pope Francis that they might be powerful and grateful intercessors on his behalf that he may be most pleasing to God, helpful to the faithful, and strong against the enemies of Christ's Mystical Body on earth, and that he may powerfully aid in the restoration of the sacred Liturgy to its ancient beauty and integrity. To this end I apply to the Holy Father's dead the indulgence offered as I pray. Memorare, etc."

How to enroll souls: please email me at and submit as follows: "Name, State, Country." If you want to enroll entire families, simply write in the email: "The Jones family, Ohio, USA". Individual names are preferred. Be greedy -- send in as many as you wish and forward this posting to friends and family as well.

    "...strong against the enemies of Christ's Mystical Body on earth"

    In this respect, I wouldn't expect much response. It's not like these 'enemies' are hidden or indestructible. Nope, we continue to vote for them and purchase their 'wares' and don't think twice. We let them take office, control our banks and media and all we Catholics can do is blame our Clergy? We're even to afraid to whisper it loudly and believe me, we will all be judged for this cowardice.
