All powerful God, grant to our brother Gregory, 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.

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]
