Posted on 04/07/2013 3:04:32 PM PDT by Salvation
Please pray for my dad, Jerry, age 100, and the repose of his soul. He died at 9:15 this morning.
Divine Mercy Sunday.
Be assured you’re in my prayers. What a full life; I would’ve loved hearing about the past from him.
Prayers for your Dad and you all.
That is beautiful. Thank you.
Prayers up for your Dad, and for you FRiend.
Myrrh and incense let us take
and a sweet remembrance make
of souls who sleep with the faith
that they will arise.
Who with your true body, Lord,
have received your blood adored;
Impart to these faithful souls
the heavenly prize.
Righteous souls the faith have kept,
with the hope of rising sleep,
Expecting your great reward in Heaven above.
Which has not been seen or heard,
nor to man has it occurred
what God has prepared for those
who yearn for His love.
From a hymn written by St. Ephrem - 4th century
Eternal rest grant unto your father, Salvation! May the angels escort him to his heavenly reward.
Absolutely beautiful. How are YOU doing?
Sincerest condolences, also.
Salvation, you have my most heartfelt prayers for your father who is Home and now in eternal peace, and for your family who I know will miss him very much. G-d’s Peace abide with you and yours.
Prayers for your daughter and son in law. Best wishes for their success.
May God have mercy.
His body was giving out on him, but his mind was still sharp as a tack. We always played cards with him when I visited him.
Used to be pinochle, then it turned to canasta.
I just sent that to my brothers and sister for the funeral handout. Never know!
Beautiful words, and they fit my father.
Prayers for your family — my goodness a century meant God had a lot for him!
I know you know that God and Jesus soothe the souls of the just.
Please know I am praying for you.
I will never forget the words of the parish priest at my grandfather’s funeral: “save your prayers for the living, he (grandpa) is with the Lord already.”
What’s happening with you, dear one?
Prayers up. He lived through amazing times.
Thought you might enjoy the remarkable story behind the success of Chobani Yogurt. Many prayers for your daughter, son-in-law and their child.
Crossing The Bar
Sunset and evening star. And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar when I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep too full for sound and foam. When that which drew from out the boundless deep turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell, and after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell when I embark;
For though from out our borne of time and place the flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face when I have crossed the bar.
On the way.
Doing a Chaplet!
In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.
May angels lead you into paradise; upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, once a poor man, may you have eternal rest.
