Prayer for Deceased Priests

Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that the souls of Thy servants, Thy priests whom in this life
Thou didst honor with the sacred office, may rejoice in the glory of Heaven for ever more.

We pray for the happy repose of the soul of ........

May eternal rest be granted to him, O Lord, and let Perpetual Light shine upon him, and may he rest in peace. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.
