For the Departed

Our eternal Lord God holds all souls in life. We pray that He would give His light and peace to His Church in paradise and on earth. We also pray that He would grant that, having followed the examples of the faithful departed, we would at the last enter with them into His unending joy.

“For the Departed,” from The Book of Common Prayer.
