For Justin life is changed, not ended ….

25 November, 2009

Please remember in your prayer Fr. Justin Ives, C.P., from the Adelaide Community who died in Royal Adelaide Hospital this afternoon (25th November 2009) at 5.30 p.m.

****

All powerful God, grant to our brother Justin, one with us in the sacred bonds of the Passion, forgiveness of his sins. His desire on earth was to be like Christ, your Son. May he rejoice in his presence and praise you for ever.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

[Votive Mass for Deceased Members of the Congregation of the Passion.]

Lord, for your faithful people life is changed, not ended. When the body of our earthly dwelling lies in death we gain an everlasting dwelling place in heaven.

[Preface for Christian Death I]
