Prayer

O God, almighty Father, our faith professes that your Son died and rose again; mercifully grant, that through this mystery your servant John, who has fallen asleep in Christ, may rejoice to rise again through him. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
