Prayers For Our Dead

O happy fault that earned for us so great, so glorious a Redeemer.






All Souls Day is 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 now see You face to face.

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

More to explorer


  1. Yes, thank you. For the souls of Sandy Klisuric and Richard Klisuric who died this week. For the souls of the Klisuric family, in particular, Peter, Margaret, Mary, Peter, Mary, Tom, Helen, Ann and their spouses Mike, Johnny and Nicky. For the souls of the Sulick family, in particular, Nicholas, Mary, Johnny, Helen, Maryanne, Gloria and Denny and their spouses Beatrice, Frank, Thomas and Milly. For my in-laws, Rogelio and Lilia, and all of their relatives, especially Amelia and her spouse, Ricky, his older brother, and his son, Richard, and Alicia’s spouse. Also, Lord, for the poor soul known only to You who has no one to pray for him.

  2. For Eric, Donna, Maude, Sven, Jane, Bill, John, Ruth, and many more whose names are known to God.
    Susan Tassone has a nice little booklet: Thirty Day Devotions to the Holy Souls (Our Sunday Visitor).

  3. Please remember the forgotten elderly. Shut in’s and those that have died in our nursing homes and assisted living centers across the globe.
    God have mercy.

  4. for the 65 million souls who have been aborted and scandalized through their horrific abortion. May God have mercy on them and grant them the light and peace of Jesus Christ.

  5. For those who strayed from the Church or did not know of it. As the last line in the addition to the Rosary goes (St. Teresa of Avila?): “May He lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of His mercy.”

  6. Hi Dr. Bob Kurland.

    I believe that the prayer you mentioned was part of the Fatima prayers;

    The Blessed Mother stressed the critical importance of praying the rosary daily for the conversion of sinners and for peace in the world. She asked that the following prayer be recited at the end of each rosary decade:

    Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.

    God bless you and your family.
