We pray for the souls of those recently departed
In your hands, O Lord,
we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love;
deliver them now from every evil
and bid them eternal rest. AMEN
For those who have gone before us,
Seeds planted in your rich pasture
With the hope of life eternal.
May their enduring spirit live on,
Enriching and empowering our lives,
Their love linger,
Their presence be near,
Until we meet once more. AMEN
