On The Anniversary
Of The Death Of...
Lord of Life and Death,
today, I remember the death of (name) whose life touched mine and added to the richness of my existence. I pause to recall the good times that we shared together.
(pause for silent reflection)
I am grateful that these are imperishable treasurers which I will carry with me into eternity. Within the mystery of Your divine plan, our life-pathways came together and blended as parallel pathways.
I am grateful today for all that we shared in our times together, for humor and work, for affection and trust, for the celebration of life.
Lord of Compassion,
we are all sinners and in need of divine healing, so grant to (name) whatever is needed so that he/she can rejoice forever in Your divine friendship and eternal care.
I lift up into Your Divine Heart my loved one and ask that You grant to him/her eternal peace and the perpetual company of Your saints.
