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.

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.
PRAYER # 131
