Prayer of Remembrance
S. Nadine Luebbert
November 20, 1929 - December 8, 2020
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)
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."

Good and gracious God,
We give you thanks for the life of Sister Nadine; for her call, and for her years of faithful commitment to you, and to this Congregation.
We celebrate the gift she was to her family,
to her friends, and to her religious Sisters.
We humbly ask that she is rewarded with
eternal life in your presence.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you.
Deep peace of Christ the light of the world to you.
Deep peace of Christ to you.
Blessed are those who have died in the Lord;
let them rest from their labors
for their good deeds go with them.
Eternal rest grant unto
Sister Nadine, O Lord.
R./ And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
May her soul and the souls of all the
faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
May the love of God, and the peace of
our Lord Jesus Christ, bless and console us,
and gently wipe every tear from our eyes,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Let us go in peace.
R./ Thanks be to God.
