Prayer For First Death Anniversary

Grant, we beseech You, Almighty God, that the soul of Your servant, N., which has departed from this world, may be cleansed by this sacrifice, and delivered from sins, and may receive forgiveness and everlasting rest. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

O Eternal God, who besides the general precept of charity, has commanded a particular respect to parents, kindred & benefactors; grant, we beseech You, that as they were the instruments by which Your Providence bestowed on us our birth, education and innumerable other blessings, so our prayers may be the means to obtain for her/him a speedy release from her/his suffering, and free admittance to Your infinite joys, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Most sweet Jesus, who in Your desire to redeem the world, deigned to be born, to be mocked, to fall into the hands of Your enemies through the treacherous kiss of Judas, to be bound and brought to the place of sacrifice like the meek lamb, brought before Caiphas, Pilate, and Herod, spat on, accused and condemned with false witnesses, to be slapped and have Your sacred body covered with wounds from the cruel scourging, to be crowned with thorns, Your face covered with a purple cloth in mockery, stripped of Your garments, nailed and elevated on the cross between two thieves as if You were one of them, offered gall and vinegar to drink, and to be pierced in Your side with a lance, deliver, O Lord, the souls in purgatory from their great sufferings through Your most bitter Passion; bring them to Your glory and deliver us from the pains of hell, through the merits of Your Holy Passion and Death on the Cross, so that we may enter that Kingdom where You brought the good thief who was crucified with You, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever. Amen.

Blessed are you, Lord our God, lover of souls
you uphold us in life and sustain us in death:
to you be glory and praise for ever!
For the darkness of this age is passing away
as Christ the bright and morning star
brings to his saints the light of life.
As you give light to those in darkness
who walk in the shadow of death
so remember in your kingdom your faithful servants
that death may be for them the gate to life
and to unending fellowship with you;
where with your saints you live and reign
one in the perfect union of love
now and for ever. Amen.

O Lord,
the God of mercies,
grant unto the souls of Thy servants
the anniversary day of whose burial we are keeping,
a place of solace,
of peaceful rest,
of glorious light.

Through Christ our Lord,


Almighty and eternal God, from whose love in Christ we cannot be parted, either by death or life: hear our prayers and thanksgivings for all whom we remember this day; fulfill in them the purpose of your love; and bring us all, with them, to your eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
