Grant, O Lord, that my own heart may be
touched, as yours is, at the passing of
all souls into eternal life.
In great confidence, I pray for all my
friends and loved ones who are no
longer here on this journey of faith.
When I am sad at the death of those
who were close to me, may my sadness
be firmly supported by my faith that life
is merely changed not ended, that those
I love are still with me though unseen.
May You, Lord Jesus Christ, welcome
me and all those for whom I pray, into
eternal life at the moment pleasing
Saint Therese, intercede for me.
Saint Therese, strengthen my faith.
