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 9

2 Timothy 1:8–10

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

These verses summarize the gospel for which God’s servants suffer. They are a reminder of the power of God on whom Christians rely. Paul’s exalted language suggests he is also arguing that such a glorious message is worthy of their suffering.

Paul contrasts works, which do not save, with God’s purpose and grace, which brings life. In the Pastoral Epistles, Paul often describes both God the Father and God the Son as Saviors of their people (cf. 1 Tim. 1:1; 1 Tim. 2:3; 1 Tim. 4:10; Titus 1:3–4; Titus 2:10; Titus 2:13; Titus 3:4, 6).


DAY 9 – NOVENA FOR THE DEAD

Lord God, you are the glory of the believers
and the life of the just.
Your Son redeemed us by dying and rising to life again.

Our brother/sister……………………………….
was faithful and believed in the resurrection.
Give to him/her the joys and the blessings of the life to come.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.

Amen.


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