Prayer for the Dead

In light of recent world and domestic events, I offer the following for our reflection and prayer:
with God
Prayer for the Dead
Into your hands, O Lord,
we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love;
deliver them now from every evil
and bid them enter eternal rest.
The old order has passed away:
welcome them into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow,
no weeping nor pain,
but fullness of peace and joy
with your Son and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.
R/. Amen.
Taken from Catholic Household Blessings & Prayers, Revised Edition, USCCB
