Pray with me:
Eternal God, let your mercy rest upon us as we with grateful affection remember all those we loved who have departed this life. We thank you for their days upon the earth and the joy that they brought to many. May our remembrance of them live long among us and be to us a source of guidance and strength. Give to those who miss them most deeply wells of consolation from which to draw comfort, and enable us to be your ministers of mercy to them in their time of need. AmenMay God bless and keep you all. May this senseless violence at last come to an end.
