Blessing For The Commemoration Of The Dead

In His great love,
the God of all consolation gave man the gift of life.
May He bless you with faith
in the resurrection of His Son,
and with the hope of rising to new life.

R. Amen!

To us who are alive
may He grant forgiveness,
and to all who have died
a place of light and peace.

R. Amen!

As you believe that Jesus rose from the dead,
so may you live with Him for ever in joy.

R. Amen!

May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.

R. Amen!
