Saturday Song – Song of Farewell

This song is played at funerals and I have always loved it. “May the choirs of angels come to greet you, may they speed you to Paradise. May the Lord enfold you, in His mercy, may you find Eternal Light.” So beautiful

In November we remember our deceased in a special way. Many of us attended masses or prayer services this past Wednesday, All Souls Day. My husband Mark’s sister Olga died this past March and her funeral was held here at Immaculate Conception. We attended the Mass of Remembrance on Wednesday and it was so moving.

This hymn is not used here at Immaculate Conception, but we do use the lovely hymn, Quietly, Peacefully at each funeral. I could not find a great video of it, but that too is just so moving to me.

We offer prayers of rest and peace for all those who have gone before us and prayers of healing, consolation and hope for all who loved them and who mourn.
