This beautiful prayer was sent to us by Fr Coriolan Muresan, Chaplain to the Greek -Romanian Catholic Community who gather in St Michan’s Church, Halston Street for weekly mass.
Byzantine Catholic Prayer for the Deceased
God of the spirits and of all flesh,
who have trampled death and annihilated the devil
and given life to your world, may you yourself,
O Lord, grant to the soul of your deceased servants
N.rest in a place of light, a verdant place,
a place of freshness, from where suffering,
pain and cries are far removed.
Do You, O good and compassionate God
forgive every fault committed by him in word,
work or thought because there is no man
who lives and does not sin.
You alone are without sin and your justice
is justice throughout the ages and your word is truth.
Since you, O Christ our God, are the resurrection,
the life and the repose of your deceased servants N.,
we give you glory together with your un-begotten Fatherand your most holy, good and life-creating Spirit,
now and always and forever and ever.
