Prayer for Wednesday (All Souls Day / Day of the Dead)

All Souls Day is a Roman Catholic observance devoted to prayer and remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed.

Merciful Father,
hear our prayer and console us.
As we renew our faith in Your Son,
whom You raised from the dead,
strengthen our hope
that all our departed brothers and sisters
will share in His resurrection,
who lives and reigns
with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen

(Catholic Collect from the Mass for the Dead)

Eternal Rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

(Requiem Aeternam)
