About a week late, due to computer and phone line issues that have kept me off-line, ...
In your charity, on this12th anniversary, please remember Raymond, the late husband of our beloved friend, sister, and fellow forumite, Anhelyna/Our Lady's slave, who reposed in the Lord on May 28, 2009.
O God of all spiritual and corporeal beings, You Who trampled death, broke the power of Satan and granted life to the whole world, now, O Lord, grant rest to the soul of Your departed servant, Raymond, in a place of light, freshness, and peace, where there is neither pain, nor sorrow, nor mourning, but only life everlasting.
As You are a gracious God and the Lover of mankind, forgive him every transgression committed by him in word, thought, or deed, since there is no man alive who has not sinned, for You alone are without sin and You are the Resurrection and the Life, O Christ our God, and we render glory to You, together with Your Eternal Father, and Your most Holy, gracious, and life-giving Spirit, now and always and forever.
May his memory be eternal and may Anhelyna and all of his loved ones be comforted in the prayerful expectation of being reunited with him in Heaven.
