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.
O God, whose nature is ever to have mercy and to spare, we humbly beseech You on behalf of Your servant, N., whom You have called out of this world.

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.
Be merciful, we implore You O Lord, to the soul of Your servant, N., for whom we offer to You this sacrifice of praise, humbly beseeching Your majesty that, by those holy and propitiary offerings, s/he may be found worthy to win 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.
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.

Give him/her eternal rest, O Lord,
and may your light shine on him/her forever. R/.
Let us pray.
All-powerful and merciful God,
we commend to you N., your servant.
In your mercy and love,
blot out the sins he/she has committed
through human weakness.
In this world he/she has died:
let him/her live with you forever.
Through Christ our Lord.
In 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 eternal rest.
The old order has passed away:
welcome them into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain,
but fullness of peace and joy
with your Son and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.
I commend you, my dear brother/sister,
to almighty God,
and entrust you to your Creator.
May you return to Him
who formed you from the dust of the earth.
May holy Mary, the angels, and all the saints
come to meet you as you go forth from this life.
May Christ who was crucified for you
bring you freedom and peace.
May Christ who died for you
admit you into his garden of paradise.
May Christ, the true Shepherd,
Acknowledge you as one of his flock.
May He forgive all your sins,
And set you among those He has chosen.
May you see your Redeemer face to face,
And enjoy the vision of God for ever.
All praise and glory are yours, Lord our God,
for you have called us to serve you in love.
Bless all who have grown old in your service
and give N. strength and courage
to continue to follow Jesus your Son.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
