AN IRISH BLESSING
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind
be always at your back.
May the sun
shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall
soft upon your fields
And until we meet
again may GOD hold you
in the palm of HIS hand.
PRAYER # 116
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one,
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.

PRAYER TO ST. PATRICK
O Great Apostle of Ireland, glorious
St. Patrick, to whom under God, so
many are indebted for the most
precious of all treasures, the great
gift of Faith, receive our fervent thanks
for the zeal and charity which have
been to thousands the source of
blessings so invaluable. Ask for all who
dwell in this land and the land of
thy labors, the precious light of Faith,
and beg for us on whom its glorious
rays have long since beamed, the
grace to regulate our lives by
its sacred maxims.
PRAYER # 148
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy; hail
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To Thee do we cry, poor banished
children of Eve; to Thee do we send
up our sighs, mourning and weeping
in this valley of tears. Turn then, most
gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy
towards us; and after this our exile
show unto us the blessed fruit of
thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God
That we may be worthy of the
promises of Christ.
PRAYER # 119
The blow was great, the shock
We little thought the end
And only those who have lost
The pain of parting without
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
Nothing can ever take away,
The love a heart holds dear.
Fond memories linger every day,
Remembrance keeps him[her] near.
PRAYER # 120
done, gone the sun
well, safely rest.
and praise, for our days,
go, this we know,
PRAYER # 121
Remember O most gracious Virgin
Mary that never was it known that
anyone who fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy help, and sought Thy
intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins,
my Mother! To Thee I come,
before Thee I stand, sinful and
sorrowful. Oh Mother of the Word
incarnate despise not my
petitions, but in Thy mercy hear
and answer me.
PRAYER # 123
Fill not your hearts with pain and
sorrow, but remember me in every
tomorrow. Remember the joy, the
laughter, the smiles. Iíve only gone
to rest for a while. Although my
leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and
given me relief. So dry your eyes
and remember me, not as I am but
as I used to be. Because, I will
remember you all and look on
with a smile. Understand in your
hearts, Iíve only gone to rest a
while. As long as I have the love
of you, I can live my life in the
hearts of all of you.
PRAYER # 124
God grant me the serenity to accept
the things I cannot change, courage to
change the things I can and wisdom
to know the difference. Living one day
at a time, enjoying one moment at a
time; accepting hardship as a pathway
to peace. Taking, as Jesus did, this
sinful world as it is, not as I would
have it. Trusting that You will make all
things right if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in
this life and supremely happy with
You forever in the next.
PRAYER # 114
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is
so great, so strong, so prompt before
the throne of God, I place in you all
my interest and desires. Oh, St. Joseph,
do assist me by your powerful
intercession, and obtain for me from
your divine foster Son all spiritual
blessings, through Jesus Christ,
our Lord; so that, having engaged
here below your heavenly power, I
may offer my thanksgiving and
homage to the most loving of Fathers.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary
contemplating you, and Jesus asleep
in your arms; I dare not approach
while He reposes near your heart.
Press Him in my name and kiss His
fine head for me and ask Him
to return the kiss when I draw my
dying breath. St. Joseph patron of
departing souls, pray for us. Amen.
PRAYER # 125
O Mother of perpetual help, grant
that I may ever invoke Your most
powerful name, which is the
safeguard of the living and the
salvation of the dying. O purest Mary!
O Sweetest Mary! let Your name
henceforth be ever on my lips.
Delay not, O blessed Lady! to help
me when ever I call on You, for
in all my temptations, in all my needs,
I shall never cease to call on You.
Ever repeating Your sacred name,
Mary! Mary! O what consolation, what
sweetness, what confidence, what
emotion fills my soul when I utter
Your sacred name, or even only
think of You. But I will not be
content with merely uttering Your
name, let my love for You prompt
me ever to hail You,
Mother of Perpetual Help.
PRAYER # 128
When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free!
Miss me a little, but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we
Miss me but let me go.
For this journey we all must take,
and each must go alone.
Itís all part of the Master plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing
Miss me, but let me go.
PRAYER # 129
Another leaf has fallen,
another soul has gone.
But still we have Godís promises,
in every robinís song.
For he is in His heaven,
and though He takes away,
He always leaves to mortals,
the bright sunís kindly ray.
He leaves the fragrant blossoms,
and lovely forest, green.
And gives us new found comfort,
when we on Him will lean.
PRAYER # 130
Donít grieve for me, for now Iím free;
I took His hand when I
heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
If my parting has left a void;
Then fill it with remembered joy.
My lifeís been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times,
a loved oneís touch.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Donít lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me;
God wanted me now,
He set me free.
