E commend, to thee, O Lord,

the Soul of thy Servant N. and we beseech thee, O Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World, that as in mercy to him thou becamest Man, so now thou wouldst vouchsafe to admit him into the bosow of thy Patriarchs. Remember, O Lord, he is thy Creature, not made by strange Gods, but by thee, the only living and true God: for there is no other God but thee, and none that can equal thy Works. Let his Soul rejoice in thy presence, and re. nember not his former iniquities and excesses, which he has fallen into through the violence of passion, and the corruption of his Nature. For although he has sinned, yet he has always firmly believed in the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; he has had a zeal for thy honour, and faithfully adored thee as his God, and the Creator of all things.

EMEMBER not, O Lord, we

beseech thee, the sins of his Youth, and his Ignorances : but according to thy great Mercy, be mindful of him in thy heavenly Glory. Let the Heavens be opened to him,

and the Angels rejoice with him. Let the Archangel St. Michael, whom thou hast appointed the Chief of the Heavenly Host, conduct him, Let thy holy Angels come out to meet him, and carry him to the City of the heavenly Jerusalem. Let St. Peter the Apostle, to whom thou hast given the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, receive him. Let St. Paul the Apostle, who was a vessel of Election, assist him. Let St. John the beloved Disciple, to whom the secrets of Heaven were revealed, intercede for him. Let all the holy Apostles, who received from Jesus Christ the Power of binding and loosing, pray for him. Let all the Saints and Elect of God, who in this world have suffered torinents for the uame of Christ, intercede for bim : that being freed from the prison of his Body, he may be admitted into the glory of thy heavenly kingdom: through the grace and merits of our Lord Jesus Christ, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth 'one God, world without end. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, who by the

mouth of thy holy Prophet hast said, I have loved thee with an everlasting love, therefore have I drawn thee to myself, taking pity on thee: by that divine love which brought thee down from heaven to suffer all the torments of thy Passion for our Redemption, we humbly beseech thee to represent and offer to thy eternal Father that same love, in behalf of the Soul of this thy Servant N. and deliver him from all the sufferings and pains which he fears he has deserved for his sins; and save his Soul in this hour of its departure out of his body. Open to him the gates of Life, introduce him into thy heavenly Paradise, and make him rejoice with thy Saints; that he may live with thee in the bond of eternal love, and may be inseparably united to thy Saints, and to thee, who with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest God, world without end. Amen.
