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

AFTER GLOW

 

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 # 117

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

severe,

We little thought the end

was near.

And only those who have lost

can tell

The pain of parting without

farewell.

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

TAPS

 

Day is done, gone the sun
From the lake, from the hill
From the sky.

 

All is well, safely rest.
God is nigh.

 

Thanks and praise, for our days,
íNeath the sun, Ďneath the stars,
íNeath the sky.

 

As we go, this we know,
God is nigh.

Amen.

 

PRAYER # 121

 
 


 
 

"The Chaplet of the Divine

Mercy"

 

Eternal Father, I offer You the

Body and Blood, Soul and

Divinity of Your dearly beloved

Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in

atonement for our sins and

those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful

passion, have mercy on us and

on the whole world. Holy God,

Holy Mighty One,

Holy Immortal One, have

mercy on us and on the

whole world.

 

PRAYER # 122

MEMORARE

 

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.

Amen.

 

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.

Amen.

 

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

PERPETUAL HELP

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

once shared,

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

good deeds.

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.
