On the death of my mother


#1

Please pray for the repose of the soul of my mother, Rita, who died tonight after a battle with lung cancer.

Please pray for family members who are grieving, especially for my father. They were married for almost sixty years.

Finally, please pray that this will be a moment of grace and conversion for any family members who need to return to Christ and His Church.

Thank you!

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 death.
Amen.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts, enkindle in us the fire of Your love.

Eternal Father, I offer You the body and blood, soul and divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.:signofcross:

I lost my mother in May after a very long illness. I know your suffering and feeling of loss. I can tell you that God will bless you during these next days ahead, giving you strength and peace during the Rosary/Visitation and funeral. I know that you will have trouble sleeping. That you will feel loss and emptiness. That you will sit in silence looking at those around you and wondering how life goes on when you have lost someone so dear.

In the weeks ahead, you will cry a lot of tears. You will pray for strength – and God will give you blessings. You will remember many joyous times and you will suffer with the memory of your mother’s pain.

It is a lttle more than six months since my mother passed. On the exact six month anniverary of her death, my two sisters and I went out for a movie, dinner and a massage. We felt loss – but more importantly, we felt blessed that my mother was always with us. she was there that day — we knew it.

I pray for you today but don’t lose Faith that life will rise again in joy! God will make sure of it.
