How Great Thou Art
Opening Prayer

Loving God, source of all good,

you have drawn many to follow Jesus, 

the Incarnate Word, 

and to bind themselves to you

with a ready will,

and a loving heart.

Look with mercy

on our Sister Nadine

and grant her a place of refreshment,

of blessed rest,

and resplendent life.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Liturgy of the Word 
First Reading: Wisdom 3:1-6, 9

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. 

For if to others, indeed, they seem punished,

yet is their hope full of immortality;

Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,

because God tried them

and found them worthy of himself. 

As gold in the furnace, he proved them,

and as sacrificial offerings  he took them to himself.

Response: Psalm 23 (The Lord is My Shepherd)

00:00 / 03:38
 Gospel: John 6:37-40
Jesus said to the crowds:
"Everything that the Father gives me will come to me,
    and I will not reject anyone who comes to me,
    because I came down from heaven not to do my own will
    but the will of the one who sent me.
And this is the will of the one who sent me,
    that I should not lose anything of what he gave me,
    but that I should raise it on the last day.
For this is the will of my Father,
    that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him
    may have eternal life,
    and I shall raise him on the last day."
