Requiem Aeternam: Prayer Request for My Grandfather

Robert Donald Western
1919 - 2014

Many thanks to all for the prayers.

He passed away on Divine Mercy Sunday.  

Fathers, kindly offer Holy Mass for the repose of his soul.  

Prayers of mercy at the grave:

"Let us pray.  Grant, O Lord, this mercy to Thy servant departed that he, who in his desires did Thy will, may not receive the punishment of his misdeeds; and that as the true faith hath joined him to the company of the faithful here below, so may Thy mercy unite him to the society of Thy holy angels in heaven.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen." 

Collect from the Requiem Mass:

"O God, to Whom it belongs ever to have mercy and to spare, we humbly beseech Thee for the soul of Thy servant, Robert, whom Thou hast called out of this world today, that Thou deliver it not into the hands of the enemy, nor forget it forever, but command it to be received by all the angels and taken to paradise, its true country, that inasmuch as it hoped and believed in Thee, it may not endure the pains of hell, but may take possession of eternal joys.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen."

Gradual from the Requiem Mass:

"Eternal rest give to them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them.  The just shall be in everlasting remembrance; he shall not be in fear of evil tidings."

Tract from the Requiem Mass:

"Absolve, O Lord, the souls of all the faithful departed from every bond of sin.  And by the help of Thy grace may they be enabled to escape the judgement of condemnation, and enjoy the happiness of light eternal."
