ST AGNES PARISH BULLETIN 6TH NOVEMBER 2022…32ND SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL

DEPARTED

FOR NOVEMBER

Out of the depths I cry to you O Lord, Lord, hear my voice!

O let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleading.

If you, O Lord should mark our guilt, Lord who would survive?

But with you is found forgiveness; for this we revere you.

My soul is waiting for the Lord.  I count on His word.

My soul is longing for the Lord more than the watchman for daybreak.

(Let the watchman count on daybreak and Israel on the Lord).

Because, with the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption.

Israel indeed He will redeem for all its iniquity.

v– Eternal rest grant to them O Lord

r – And let perpetual light shine upon them

v – May they rest in peace

r – Amen

v – O Lord, hear my prayer

r – And let my cry come to you.

Let us pray, O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful,

grant to the souls of your servants departed the remission of all their sins,

that through our fervent prayer they may obtain that pardon

which they have always desired; who live and reign forever and ever.

Amen
