At that time, our Beloved Lord has saith: “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for my name’s sake.” St Matthew 24:9
We here at HolySynergy are very saddened by the death of the beloved Father Jacques Hamel of Saint Étienne-du-Rouvray, France. By the hands of infidels in whom belonged to the cult of ISIS, he was be headed for the Holy Catholic Faith. Therefore, we pray the following prayers:
Remember, O Lord, those that have departed this life, the Catholic kings and queens, princes and princesses, most holy universal supreme pontiffs and patriarchs, most reverent metropolitans, bishops and archbishops, those in priestly and clerical orders of the Church, those in priestly and clerical orders of the Church, and those that have served Thee in the monastic order, and grand them rest with the saints in Thine eternal tabernacles. (Sign of the Cross and bow)
Remember, O Lord, the souls of Thy departed servant Father Father Jacques Hamel, and forgive him for his transgressions, both voluntarily and involuntarily, granting him the kingdom and a portion of Thine eternal good things, and delight of Thine endless and blessed life. (Sign of the Cross and bow)
Remember, O Lord, also all our fathers and brethren, and sisters, and those that lie here, and all Catholic Christians that departed in the hope of the resurrection and life eternal, and settle them with Thy Saints, where the light of Thy countenance shall visit them, and have mercy on us, for Thou art good and the Lover of mankind. (Sign of the Cross and bow)
Grant, O Lord, remission of sins to all of our fathers, brethren, and sisters that have departed before us in the faith and hope of the resurrection, and make their memory to be eternal. (Sign of the cross and bow)
It is truly meet to bless thee, the Theotokos, and ever blessed and most blameless, and mother of our God. More honorable than the Cherubim, and far more glorious than the Seraphim, who without corruption gave birth to God the Word, the very Theotokos, thee do we magnify.
Glory be to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, both now and forever unto ages of ages. Amen.
Love Have Mercy, Lord Have Mercy, Lord Have Mercy! O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, for the sake of the prayers of Thy most pure mother, and our holy and God bearing fathers and all the saints, have mercy on us. Amen.
