Re: [liturgy-l] A peaceful death - Prayers: Roman Rite
- Here are the Roman Rite prayers from the votive mass "For a Happy Death"
from the proposed new translation of the Sacramentary
A Happy Death
you have created us in your own image
and have sent your Son to undergo death for our sake;
keep us ever watchful in prayer,
that we may leave this world unstained by sin
and find joyous rest in the arms of your mercy.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
Deus, qui nos ad imaginem tuam creasti,
et pro nobis Filium tuum mortem subire voluisti,
concede supplicibus tuis ita vigilare omni tempore
ut absque peccati macula de hoc mundo exire,
et in sinu misericordiæ tuæ
cum exsultatione requiescere mereamur.
Prayer over the Gifts
You have destroyed our death, O Lord,
by the death of your only Son;
through the power of his sacrament
keep us obedient to your will even to the end,
that we may depart from this world in trust and peace
to share by your grace in the resurrection of Christ,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
Sicut mortem nostram occidisti, Domine, morte
ita eiusdem sacramenti virtute præsta,
ut, voluntati tuæ ob?dientes usque ad mortem,
cum pace et fiducia de hoc sæculo exire,
et ipsius resurrectionis participes effici tuo munere
Prayer after Communion
through the celebration of these mysteries
we have received the pledge of immortal life;
we pray for your grace at the hour of our death,
that the snares of the enemy may be overcome,
and that we may rest eternally in your embrace.
Grant this in the name of Jesus, the Lord.
Immortalitatis pignora, Domine, per hæc mysteria
pro nostræ mortis exitu
pietatis tuæ auxilium supplices imploramus,
ut, inimici superatis insidiis,
in sinu gloriæ tuæ reficiamur æternæ.
