PARTING PRAYER AFTER THE DEATH OF A CHILD

Let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.

O LORD, who guardest children in this life, and in the
world to come has prepared for them the amplitude of
Abraham’s bosom, and, because of their purity, radiant
angelic abodes wherein the spirits of the Righteous dwell:
Do thou, O Christ, the same Master, receive in peace the
soul of thy servant, this child. For thou hast said, “Let
the children come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of
heaven”:

For unto thee are due all glory, honor and worship,
with the Father and the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and
unto ages of ages.

Amen.

I have a hard time believing the mother’s story. I believe that she gave birth to her baby in a toilet and that she flushed, but I find it hard to believe that she was oblivious of the fact she was in childbirth AND she didn’t seek any help afterwards. I guess I could buy her not realizing she was giving birth, even–but then why did she treat her baby so horribly afterwards?

Prayers for the baby–what a horrible way to die! :frowning: :gopray2:

It happens.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls into heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy. Amen.

I bet there’s good bbq in hell.
Everything is flame broiled.
