St. Ambrose once wrote: “We have loved him in this life; let us not abandon him in death but rather by our prayers, let us conduct him to the bliss of eternal glory.”
“O Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in purgatory, have mercy upon the soul of Thy servant.
Be not severe in Thy judgment but let some drops of Thy precious Blood fall upon our beloved departed and do Thou O merciful Saviour send Thy angels to conduct the soul of Thy servant to a place of refreshment, light and peace.
May the angels lead you into paradise. May the martyrs receive thee at your coming and take you to the holy city.
May the choirs of angels receive you andMay you have rest everlasting.
V. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
R. Let perpetual light shine upon him.
V. May he rest in peace.
V. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
