Remembering our Deceased
During November we remember especially at our daily Masses…
Our Deceased Benefactors,
Our Deceased Families and Friends,
Our Deceased Society Members,
All our Deceased Missionary Partners,
All named on your November Dead Lists,
All named on Mission Circle Cards.
Welcome into your Kingdom our departed relatives and friends.
Let us pray for our bereaved:
Lord Jesus, our Redeemer, You willingly gave yourself up to death so that all people might be saved and pass from death into a new life. Listen to our prayers, look with love on your people who mourn, and pray for our departed loved ones. Lord Jesus, you alone are holy and compassionate: forgive our brothers and sisters their sins.
By dying you opened the gates of life for those who believe in you. Do not let our loved ones be parted from you, but by your glorious power give them light, joy and peace in heaven where you live for ever and ever. Amen.
May the prayers of Mary, The Mother of God, who stood by the cross as her Son was dying, help those who mourn. May she give them the comfort of her own faith and by her prayers, lead them on to the happiness of heaven, through Christ our Lord.
Remember our deceased in November. Eternal rest grant unto them,
O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
