Out of the depths I have cried to Thee O Lord!
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
If Thou, O Lord!
Lord, who shall stand it?
For with Thee there is mercy:
and by reason
of Thy law
I have waited on Thee, O Lord!
hath relied on His word:
hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch even until night:
let Israel hope
in the Lord.
For with the Lord
there is mercy;
and with Him plentiful Redemption.
And He will
redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord!
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
V. Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto Thee.
Bless, O my God! the repose I am about to take, that,
renewing my strength, I may be better enabled to serve Thee.
Pour down Thy blessings, O Lord!
on my parents, relations, friends, and enemies.
Protect the Pope, our Bishop,
and all the Pastors of Thy holy Church.
Assist the poor and hte afflicted,
and those who are now in their last agony.
Look with an eye of pity on the suffering souls in purgatory,
particularly N... N...;
put an end to their torments,
and lead them forth into everlasting joy.

teach me to be generous;
teach me to serve You as You deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labour and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing I am doing Your Will. continue reading
