Jesus said: "Come to me, all you who labor and are overburdened and
I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am
gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes,
my yoke is easy and my burden light."
Let Us Glory
Let us glory in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ in whom is our
salvation, life and resurrection. ~ Liturgy
Life is Eternal
Life is eternal and Love is immortal and death is only a horizon, and a
horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. ~ Fr Bede Jarrett, OP
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you
rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and
humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is
easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
May He Support Us
May He support us all the day long, till the shadows lengthen, and the
evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is
over, and our work is done. Then in His mercy, may He give us a safe
lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at least. ~ John Henry Cardinal
May the Angels Lead You Into Paradise
May the Angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs greet you at
your arrival and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem. May the choir of
Angels greet you and like Lazarus, who once was a poor man, may
you have eternal rest. ~ In Paradisium in the Gregorian Missal
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that
anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine
intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto
thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I
stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise
not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
No Longer Will Your Sun Go Down
No longer will your sun go down, for the Lord will be your Light forever.

A psalm of David
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down
in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my
soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You
anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love
will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the
O God of spirits and of all flesh, You have trampled upon death and
have abolished the power of the devil, giving life to Your world. Give
rest to the soul of Your departed servant (Name) in a place of light, in
a place of repose, in a place of refreshment, where there is no pain,
sorrow, and suffering. As a good and loving God, forgive every sin he
(she) has committed in thought, word or deed, for there is no one who
lives and does not sin. You alone are without sin. Your righteousness
is an everlasting righteousness, and Your word is truth.
