Most merciful Father,
we commend our departed into your hands.
We are filled with the sure hope
that our departed will rise again
on the Last Day with all who have died in Christ.
We thank you for all the good things
you have given during our departedâ€™s earthly life.
O Father, in your great mercy,
accept our prayer that the Gates of Paradise
may be opened for your servant.
In our turn, may we too be comforted
by the words of faith until we greet Christ in Glory
and are united with you and our departed.
Through Christ our Lord,
