Grant Them Eternal Rest

Today is All Souls' Day, as we enter this month of November dedicated to praying for all the faithful departed.

Lord, grant eternal rest to all our beloved dead, and bring them into the fullness of your joy. Praying especially for my beloved father, as well as three faculty colleagues (and dear friends), and many others who have "fallen asleep in the Lord" over the past two years in our community. We commend them to God our merciful and loving Father. Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they Rest in Peace.

"If we have died with Christ,
we believe that we shall also
live with Him.
We know that Christ,
raised from the dead,
dies no more;
death no longer has power over Him"
(Romans 6:8-9).
