WELCOME and OPENING PRAYERS

The Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make us instruments of thy peace. Where there is hatred, may we sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is discord, union. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy.  May we ourselves seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.  Amen.

Lord, help us to see death for what it really is: the end of anxiety and the beginning of peace, the end of frustration and the beginning of fulfilment, the end of weakness and the beginning of new strength, that mindful of these, your promises to us, we may go from here with a calm heart and a courageous faith, worthy of those who have enriched our lives beyond all measure.   Amen.
