Prayer for Our Dead
We seem to give them back to Thee, O God, who gave them to us. Yet, as Thou did not lose them in giving, so we do not lose them by their return. Life is eternal and love immortal and death is only an horizon, and an horizon is nothing except the limit of our sight. Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly; draw us closer to Thyself that we may know ourselves to be nearer to our loved ones who are with Thee.
St. Brigid Unity Prayer
Dear St Brigid, We ask your guidance to inspire us to offer Friendship, as you did, to all whom cross our paths in life. We ask Your Prayers to inspire us to offer the hand of Unity to all. We ask your Love to inspire us to give Christian Charity to all. We as members of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians seek to follow in your path of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity. We ask that you bestow Your Blessings upon us through Christ our Lord.. Amen.
