Prayers For Our Dead


All Souls Day will be tomorrow and I thought this would be a good time to start a post where we can pray for our dead:

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

I ask Lord that the souls of Larry McClarey, Donald D. McClarey, Mary McClarey, Raymond McClarey, Thelma McClarey, Ralph McClarey, Chuck McClarey, Roscoe McClarey, Betty Taylor, Chris Bissey, Rowena Barry, Nanny Barry, Alice Moore and Dyke Moore, and some poor soul known only to You, may even now be enjoying the Beatific Vision.  May we all share in the joy of those who see You face to face.

List the souls you wish to pray for in the comboxes.

More to explorer


  1. I pray for my beloved husband, Gary, of 42 years who passed away 3 years ago.
    I also pray for my grandparents: Mary & Benjamin T and Florence & Edward G and
    my friends: Shirley G, Sadie W, Margaret P, and Fran K.
    May Jesus forgive all their sins and bring them into heaven.
    May they all rest in peace.

  2. I pray for my parents Stanley & Helen Smialowski, my godfather Rev. Anthony Smialowski, my grandparents, Konstanty & & Katarzyna Smialowski & Karl & Elenora Oraczewski, uncles & aunts, Stanley & Stasia Labieniec, George & May Dorbuck, Joseph & Sophie Korocnzyk Walter & Helen Smialowski, Howard Ferris,Peter Bysiewicz, Caroline Ostrewski,, cousins: Lilliam Corrine Daniel Korocnzyk, Linda Fiori, extended family Michael Monn, James Perrtta, Takla Machnik Rostyk, Gregory Sironak, Antoni, Lottie & Frank Grejdus, Jacob Sr, Teresa, Jacob Jr & Clara Gacek, William Downey, James & Rena Naples.

  3. I pray especially for the souls of my cousins Mark & Mary, brother and sister, who ended their own lives, one as a teenage boy, the other as a middle-aged woman. Only God understands. I pray also for the souls in the old cemetery down the road, our closest neighbors these past 20 years.
    Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

  4. Went to a well attended Cemetery Service this afternoon at the Parish cemetery, where three friends and some acquaintances are buried. There were four stations, each with a Rosary decade, a hymn, the Eternal Rest prayer, and a petition.
    Went out of bounds to think of other cemeteries where my grandparents, great aunts and uncles, father, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, and people I knew were.
    One soul, my foot doctor, left here privately two weeks ago and had spoken fondly of having his ashes sent to Boot Hill, but his father may not have done so. Pray he’s resting.
    ‘Sunday Night Prime’ is doing a series on Purgatory. Our Holy Mother requested at Fatima that these souls be remembered in prayer.

  5. Suz, thank you for reminding us of St. Gertrude’s prayer for the souls in Purgatory.
    O God, I pray for my parents and my husband’s. For grandparents and great-grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, all our relatives and friends. For a young veteran who took his own life. For KIAs, accident victims and anyone who died suddenly without benefit of clergy or an Act of Contrition. For aborted babies. For the nuns, brothers and priests who taught us in school. For persecuted Christians and victims of ISIS, and for those souls who have no one to pray for them. Have mercy on those of us left behind struggling with loss and continue to remind us that our loved ones are in a better place. Shower us with grace so that when it is our time we will be saved to join them. Amen.

  6. Clyde Brown, Louise Brown, Jerry Robinson, Glen Halvorson, Gaylord Bice, Verna Jay Brown, Harmon Brown, Cindy Brown, Phil Brothers, Fran Hindsman

  7. For our departed family, friends and relatives whose numbers seem to exceed those yet with us. Eternal rest, light and peace grant them Lord.
