Prayer for the Dead

Dover Angel

Christ, Jesus,
Lord of life
and Redeemer of the world,
grant eternal rest to all the faithful departed.
Let my relatives and friends
whom you have called from this life
attain their eternal home.
Reward our departed benefactors
with eternal blessedness.
Grant your departed priests and religious
the recompense for their work in your vineyard.

May her Memory be Eternal.

My Grandmother died over 22 years ago and I still miss her terribly. They live on in our memories and in heaven.

Grandmothers are very, very special people. May the happy memories you had with her be a comfort to you. I know it's been a year--but it takes time to heal. May God grant her eternal rest and consolation to you & your family.

Thank you Mimi!

Evann, that is true. I didn't get to know my grandmother until I was 17 but our time together was wonderful.

Thank you Barb. She was such a dear little woman.
