Prayer for the Deceased

September 27, 2012

God, Our Father,
We commend our dear ones
to Your loving mercy.

We know that death is not the end
but only a horizon that limits our sight,
and that life with You is immortal and
love eternal.

Purify them in Your love
that they may see You face to face
and come to the full enjoyment
of Your life and happiness forever.

We ask this through Your Son,
Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
