We pray for the souls of those recently departed: especially Brain Gowing, late of the Parish.
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
PRYAER FOR SUMMER:
Jesus, thank you for Summer. Thank you for light and warmth. Thank you for the sun. Thank you for the gifts of nature and for the annual cycles and seasons. Today, give us that grace again, to see you as the Creator, the One who lifts us up to be with you forever, even now.
