For a Dying Friend

Prayer for the Dying

God of power and mercy,
you have made death itself
the gateway to eternal life.
Look with love on our dying brother,
and make him one with your Son in his suffering and death
that, sealed with the blood of Christ,
he may come before you free from sin.

Amen.

- New Saint Joseph People's Prayer Book, Catholic Book Publishing Company

Well, Esther, Fr. is smiling upon you for remembering to pray for him.
May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
May the perpetual light shine upon him, now and forwever.
And may he recite prayers for you, our friends, our families, me, and Pope Joey!
Thank you Lois

Lois, thanks for being a good "guardian angel" to Father over the years.
