Introduction

In the moments of sorrow, the Lord is in our midst and comforts us with his words: Blessed are the sorrowful; they shall be consoled.

Opening Prayer

Loving and merciful God,
we entrust our sister/brother to your mercy.
You loved him/her greatly in this life:
now that s/he is freed from all its cares,
give him/her happiness and peace for ever.
The old order has passed away:
welcome him/her now into Paradise
where there will be no more sorrow,
no more weeping or pain,
but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son,
and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

Amen.


REFLECTION 6

Philippians 1:20-21

It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

The crucial thing for Paul is not life or death. It is maintaining his faithful witness to Christ. “Or by death” indicates that Paul hopes to honor Christ even in the way he eventually dies.

Paul’s life is not a matter of seeking his own comfort or advancement. It is all about seeking the advancement of Christ’s kingdom: to live is tantamount to serving Christ.

In fact, to die should be seen as gain, because it would mean that Paul would be freed from his trouble-filled life on earth to rejoice in Christ’s presence.


DAY 6 – NOVENA FOR THE DEAD

Lord Jesus Christ,
incline your ears to our petitions.
Have mercy on the souls in purgatory,
especially for the soul of_______
for whom we make this novena.
We humbly ask you to set them free
and bring them to the happiness in heaven,
for the greater glory and honour of your name.

Amen.


May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
