Lord, have mercy.

For [  and for] all who have died in the communion of your Church, and those whose faith is known to you alone, that, with all the saints, they may have rest in that place where there is no pain or grief, but life eternal, we pray to you, O Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

Rejoicing in the fellowship of the Blessed Virgin Mary, [of Saint  ], and of all the saints, let us commend ourselves, and one another, and all our life to Christ our God.
To you, O Lord our God.

The Celebrant concludes with this Collect or with one of these Collects.

O God, whose days are without end, and whose mercies cannot be numbered: Make us, we ask you, deeply sensible of the shortness and uncertainty of human life; and let your Holy Spirit lead us in holiness and righteousness all our days: that, when we shall have served you in our generation, we may be gathered unto our fathers, having the testimony of a good conscience; in the communion of the Catholic Church; in the confidence of a certain faith; in the comfort of a reasonable, religious, and holy hope; in favor with you, our God, and in perfect charity with the world; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Mass continues with the Penitential Rite
