Death of one of my choir members

I just learned that a dear old woman who was in the adult choir at my church passed away last night. Her name was Pat and I was very fond of her. She was one of those jolly old souls who loved to sort of dance around when singing and she was always clapping off beat :stuck_out_tongue:

A few months ago she fell by the baptismal font at church and crashed into a big decorative urn. Apparently she suffered a small stroke from that but her family didn鈥檛 realize it until recently. She was being cared for in a convalescent home and was expected to be better and back home in about a month, so her death was a sad surprise.

Please pray for her family and friends and for those of us in the choir who consider her part of our choir family-we will miss her dearly.


We beseech Thee, O Lord,
in Thy mercy,
to have pity on the soul of Pat,
do Thou, Who hast freed her
from the perils of this mortal life,
restore to her the portion of everlasting salvation.
Through Christ our Lord,


Praying for consolation to all who loved Pat!

Praying for the repose of Pat鈥檚 soul and for comfort for her loved ones and friends.

hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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. Amen.


May her soul and all the souls of the departed rest in peace.

qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Ojcze Nasz, kt贸ry艣 jest w niebiesiech,
艣wi臋膰 si臋 imi臋 twoje;
przyjd偶 kr贸lestwo twoje,
b膮d偶 wola twoja,
jako w niebie tak i na ziemi.
Chleba naszego powszedniego daj nam dzisiaj,
i odpu艣膰 nam nasze winy,
jako i my odpuszczamy naszym winowajcom.
I nie w贸d偶 nas w pokuszenie,
ale nas zbaw ode z艂ego

Padre nuestro que est谩s en los cielos, santificado sea tu nombre,
venga tu reyno,
hagase tu voluntad,
as矛 en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan cotidiano,
Y perd贸nanos nuestras deudas,
as矛 como nosotros perdonamos 谩 nuestros deudores.
Y no nos metas en tentaci贸n,
mas l铆branos de mal.


For Pats soul and the comfort of her family and friends,

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen. :signofcross:

Eternal rest grant unto Pat, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.

May she rest in peace and God comfort her loved ones.
