How good is the custom of repeating, with piety, these great prayers after Mass, after Communion and getting to profit every day from the plenary indulgence that can even be earned and also applied for the souls in purgatory, or for a type of deceased, or by oneself. The plenary indulgence that is the one that forgives all traces of pain because of the sins committed and those already forgiven. Which, if it is not done here, will be done in purgatory.
The days that preceded the death of a young mother, who died at about 40 years of age and left behind about 9 children, from 6 to 20 years old, her daughter always heard her repeat, with pity and with great devotion , these sentences.
What a good habit she learned with the preparation for what is the First Communion, and getting to repeat them after communion every day after Mass and in this way, getting to insert them into her own life. How good the custom becomes to continue teaching them in the Preparation for what becomes the First Communion to all the children and also to the older ones. There is a kind of continuity in the trail of holiness. Those kinds of prayers from the 16th century are the ones that continue to help us today.
