Recent death.

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Father Joseph C., who died in December (but I only found out about it yesterday). He was the headmaster/principal of my primary school, he left the same year I left, to train for the priesthood as a late vocation.

Eternal rest grant unto Fr Joseph C
may perpetual light shine upon him
and may he rest in peace


May Father Joseph C rest in peace. May he and all the faithfully departed be brought into the Light of Your Presence, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

May he rest in peace and God comfort his loved ones.


Lord, You welcomed Joseph into the Priesthood.
May all the good he has done in Your name give joy to Your heart and blessing to all whom his life touched.

May Father Joseph C rest in peace. May the needs of his family and freinds be provided for according to God’s will. Amen.

May Father Joseph C rest in peace. Amen.

May Father Joseph C rest in peace. May he and all of the faithfully departed through the Mercy of God be brought into the light of His Face. Amen.

Our Father in Heaven
Holy be Your Name
Your Kingdom come
Your Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us
Do not bring us to the test
But deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary, full of grace!
The Lord is with you
Blessed are you among women
And Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

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

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.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon him.

May he rest in peace.

May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

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.

Praying for his soul

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