Commemoration of the Dead

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: First Part - The Holy Eucharist - Rite One - Roman Canon

With hands extended, he says:

Celebrant or one Concelebrant

Remember also, O Lord, thy servants and handmaids, [  and  ], who have gone before us sealed with the seal of faith, and who sleep the sleep of peace.

The Priest prays for them briefly with joined hands. Then, with hands extended, he continues:

To them, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, we beseech thee to grant the abode of refreshing, of light, and of peace. [Through the same Christ our Lord.]

The Priest strikes his breast with the right hand, saying:

To us sinners also, thy servants, who hope in the multitude of thy mercies,

With hands extended, he continues:

vouchsafe to grant some part and fellowship with thy holy Apostles and Martyrs; with John, Stephen, Matthias, Barnabas, [Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Felicitas, Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia] and with all thy Saints, within whose fellowship, we beseech thee, admit us, not weighing our merit, but granting us forgiveness;

He joins his hands and continues:

Celebrant alone

through Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom, O Lord, thou dost ever create all these good things; dost sanctify, quicken, bless, and bestow them upon us;

He takes the Chalice and the paten with the Host and, lifting them up, sings or says:

Celebrant alone or with Concelebrants

By whom, and with whom, and in whom, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, all honor and glory be unto thee, O Father Almighty, world without end.
