The death toll due to COVID-19, in Ireland, rises, seemingly unceasingly.
We ask you to remember and pray for the ten people whose deaths have been reported in the past twenty-four hours.
Ten families have been grieviously impacted; a son, a daughter, a brother, a sister, a mother, a father, a grandfather, a grandmother….a friend, has been lost to this devastating disease.
In your hands, O Lord,
we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love;
deliver them now from every evil
and bid them eternal rest.
The old order has passed away:
welcome them into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain,
but fullness of peace and joy
with your Son and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.
