Lodge Of Sorrows

“O Father of Light, grant, we beseech Thee, eternal rest unto this our dear departed brother, and let light perpetual shine upon him. We thank thee that in thy loving providence Thou hast drawn him from the unreal towards to real, from the darkness of the West into Thy glorious light of the East, through the gates of death into the splendor of immortality.

Likewise, O Lord, we pray for those who are left in sorrow. Do Thou, O Lord, comfort them with the balm of Thy loving kindness, that, strengthened by Thee and resting upon the surety of Thy wisdom, they may be sustained and consoled in their bereavement.

Amen.”
