Chapel of Remembrance
Thinking of my loved ones
Your brother will rise again.’ Martha said to him, ‘I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.’ Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live.'
Lift my heart, O God, as you lifted the hearts of Martha and Mary in their hour of sadness. They knew that to be in your presence was to receive healing and consolation. I bring myself before you now, holding in my heart my prayer for the departed, remembering
my loved ones.
Be gracious to the departed, Lord, and to us who mourn them, as you were to the women at Bethany. Inspire in me a deep faith that those who have died live now with you in the fullness of life, you who are Lord of the living.
