MARIAN PRAYER OF WELCOME
FOR A DECEASED BROTHER


May the Blessed Virgin Mary,
whose Servant(s) you have been,
welcome you as she welcomed
the Beloved Word of God.


May She take you under her protection
on your journey to God,
as She watched over you
during your time on earth.


May She lead you with all the beloved Servants
into the presence of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
the one only Mediator of us all,
in whose Resurrection from the dead
is our Hope and Salvation.


So may the Communion of Saints
be made more rich and full,
that you may be welcome
into the glory of God the Most High.
