Collect from the Mass for the Dead

Merciful Father,
hear our prayer and console us.
As we renew our faith in Your Son,
who You raised from the dead,
strengthen our hope
that all our departed brothers and sisters
will share in His resurrection.

[Roman Catholic]

All Souls Day Prayer

We suppliants, O Lord,
pour forth our prayers
for the souls of Your servants and handmaids,
that You would mercifully pardon their sins,
committed through human frailty,
and graciously bring their sufferings to an end.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ.

[Roman Catholic]
