Prayer of the Faithful for Month’s Memory Mass
Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to God except through Him. Let us pray with confidence through Him who shared our earthly exile in order to bring us to our heavenly home.
Response (R): Lord, graciously hear us.
1. We remember N. in a special way on this the month’s memory of his / her passing. Having departed his / her earthly home, may he / she now reach the joy and peace of home with God. Lord, hear us…R.
2. May N. now enjoy once more the company of all his / her departed loved ones, in Christ’s presence, freed from all suffering here on earth. Lord, hear us…R.
3. For all those who mourn N.: that they may be comforted by the hope that he / she is now in the loving embrace of God in her everlasting home. Lord, hear us…R.
4. For all of us gathered here: that nothing in this life may cause us to forget our true destiny, our eternal home with God. Lord, hear us…R.
5. For all our deceased relatives and friends: that the Lord may bring them into the light of His presence. Lord, hear us…R.
Lord, may you support us all day long, till the shadows lengthen, and evening falls,
and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done;
then, in Your mercy, Lord, grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at last.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
