Weekly Prayer Reflection for Autumn

“Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.”

All Souls Day
Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed
Dear John,
We believe in the Communion of Saints – the communion between the Saints triumphant in Heaven, the holy ones laboring on earth, and those suffering in purgatory but assured of eternal life. So in preparation for Commemoration of All Souls Day, we remember and pray for those who have gone before us, and we also pray that their good example stirs us on to follow more closely the way of Jesus Christ, the way that leads to God’s Kingdom in Heaven.
O God, King of Saints, we praise and glorify Your Holy Name for all Your servants who have finished their course in Your faith and fear. We pray that, encouraged by their example, aided by their prayers, and strengthened by their fellowship, we may also be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints in light, through the merits of Your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
