"They shall be like stars forever" (Dan 12:3) - Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

On 23 November 2014, two personages of renowned sanctity from Kerala are due to be canonised by Pope Francis: Blessed Chavara Kuriakose Elias and Blessed Euphrasia. The Mother Church is reminding us that God has walked in this country in the history of these two holy persons.

Prayers for All the Deceased

God our Father, Your power brings us to birth, Your providence guides our lives, and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence, their lives change but do not end. I pray in hope for my family, relatives and friends, and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ, Who died and now lives, may they rejoice in Your kingdom, where all our tears are wiped away. Unite us together again in one family, to sing Your praise forever and ever. Amen.

(This beautiful prayer below, drawn from the Byzantine Divine Liturgy, reminds us that Christ's victory over death brings us all the possibility of eternal rest. We pray for all of those who have gone before us, that they, too, may enter into Heaven.)

By Thy resurrection from the dead, O Christ, death no longer hath dominion over those who die in holiness.

So, we beseech Thee, give rest to Thy servants in Thy sanctuary and in Abraham's bosom.

Grant it to those, who from Adam until now have adored Thee with purity, to our fathers and brothers, to our kinsmen and friends, to all men who have lived by faith and passed on their road to Thee, by a thousand ways, and in all conditions, and make them worthy of the heavenly kingdom.
