“The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace.” – (Wisdom 3:1-3)
Dear Lord, in your mercy, we pray that you accept the souls of all your sons and daughters who perished in the Philippines during Typhoon Haiyan. May they obtain the peace we all seek, to be near you.
Bring consolation and serenity to their loved-ones, relatives and friends. May they be strong, faithful and hopeful during this difficult time. Be patience and merciful in their despair.
Send your Holy Spirit so that their deaths may inspire us in charity to assist surviving victims and the Filipino people recover from this tragedy.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
