Heavenly Father, You made the sunset
of my life more beautiful by unlocking the door
to eternal life through the death
and resurrection of Your Son.
Renew my faith, and prepare my heart
as I draw nearer to my heavenly home.
Help me to understand death
as Your messenger sent to lead me
into eternal life to be with You
and all those who love You
forever and ever.
- Columban Fr. John Marley
