Prayers for the Deceased

I have received several messages lately asking for our prayers for people that have left this world for the next. Please pray that these people may be in the peace of God now and that Christ will be their life and light for all eternity.

First, please pray for Jane, who died after a long battle with leukemia.

I also received this message:
A diocesan priest in our area, who was a close friend of my own friend's family, passed away this weekend. Please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Gerald Sheehan.

I also read about the passing of Retired Roman Catholic Bishop James Sullivan from Fargo, ND and thought you would also like to include him in your prayers as well.

Thanks to all

Prayer for the deceased:

Father, God of all consolation, in Your unending love and mercy for us, You turn the darkness of death into the dawn of new life. Show compassion to Your people in their sorrow. Be our refuge and our strength to lift us from the darkness of this grief to the peace and light of Your presence. Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, by dying for us, conquered
death and, by rising again, restored life. May we go forward eagerly to meet Him, and after our life on earth be reunited with our brothers and sisters where every tear will be wiped away. We ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.
