Praying for those who have died

Mr Shane Taylor
Faith and Mission Coordinator

A very important tradition in the Catholic family is to remember, celebrate and pray for those special people in our lives, who have died and are now in God’s eternally loving embrace.

This week we commemorated All Saints Day (1 Nov) and All Souls Day (2 Nov) when we are invited to remember all those people who have guided us, loved, and who revealed God to us. We remember those named in our families and communities and those un-named, equally loved by God. So we pray...

For all the saints
who went before us
who have spoken to our hearts
and touched us with your love,
We praise you, O God.
For all the saints
who live beside us
whose weaknesses and strengths
are woven with our own,
We praise you, O God.
For all the saints
who live beyond us
who challenge us
to change the world with them,
We praise you O God.
Catherine McAuley, pray for and with us.
Ursula Frayne, pray for and with us.
Our beloved, now with God, pray for and with us.

Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.
