Nunc Dimittis 3 April, 2005

Posted by monopod in Religion.

Last night the Pope died.

“I am happy, and you should be as well. Let us pray together with joy.”

I’m more optimistic this morning than last night.

Two prayers in a leaflet received at Mass this morning:

Prayer for John Paul II

O God,
from whom the just receive an unfailing reward,
grant that your servant John Paul, our Pope,
whom you made vicar of Peter and shepherd of
your Church,
may rejoice for ever in the vision of your glory,
for he was a faithful steward here on earth
of the mysteries of your forgiveness and grace.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.

May he rest in peace.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God rest in peace.

Prayer for the New Pope

God our Father, shepherd and guide,
look with love on Pope N, your servant,
the pastor of your Church.

May his word and example
inspire and guide the Church,
and may he, and all those entrusted to his care,
come to the joy of everlasting life.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.


Goodbye, Holy Father.
