Featured Prayer

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
hail our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Also known as Salve Regina

Fatima Prayer

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of hell,
lead all souls to Heaven,
especially those most in need of Thy mercy.


Also known as the decade prayer

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. 


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

The Peace Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
     Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
     Where there is injury, pardon;
     Where there is error, the truth;
     Where there is doubt, the faith;
     Where there is despair, hope;
     Where there is darkness, light;
     And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
    Grant that I may not so much seek
    To be consoled, as to console;
    To be understood, as to understand;
    To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
     It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
     And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Also known as the Prayer of Saint Francis (of Assisi)

Prayer for the Departed Loved Ones

Lord, help us to see death for what it really is,
     the end of poverty and the beginning of riches;
     the end of frustration and the beginning of fulfillment;
     the end of fear and the beginning of tranquility;
     the end of pain and the beginning of joy;
     the end of weakness and the beginning of strength.

Let not grief overwhelm us
     or a sense of loss embitter us.
But out of our sadness,
     let there arise a new joy
     for so much given to us.

Cast out our fears
     and let not our hearts be troubled.
Let your spirit of peace come alive
     within our experience and hurt,
     our sorrow and isolation,
     our sadness today and loneliness tomorrow.

We humbly commend to you, our dear (name of person)
     whom You have called out of this mortal life.
You loved him/her always with great love.
Now that you have freed him/her
     from all evils of the earth,
bring him/her into your paradise
     where there is no more grief
     or mourning or sadness
     but peace and joy with Your Son
     and the Holy Spirit forever.

We thank you for all the blessings
     You have given to (name of person)
     in his/her mortal life.
We pray that he/she may be able to glorify You
     with the life that he/she lived and the way
     he/she made use of his/her blessings.

Lord God, grant that we will never forget
     that life is short and uncertain.
Let your spirit guide us in holiness,
     justice and service to our brothers and sisters.

We pray for healing of all unhappy feelings
     (name of person)'s death now leaves in our hearts.
Be with us, Lord, during our moments of sorrow and loneliness.
You are our rock, our fortress and our strength.
We trust in You and hope in Your glorious resurrection.
We lift up to You our grief and sorrow,
     confident that You will change our mourning to rejoicing,
     that our beloved (name of person)
     now rests in Your peace.

Leader: Eternal rest grant unto him/her, O Lord
All:       And let Your perpetual light shine
            upon him/her

Leader: May he/she rest in peace.
All:       Amen.

Leader: May the soul of (name of person)
            and the souls of all faithful departed
through the mercy of God,
            rest in peace.
All:       Amen.
