Our Father in Heaven, we ask you to bless us,
the poor in spirit and grant us your consolation.
We ask that you look favorably upon your son
Henry, who has left this world and grant him
peace and eternal life with you in Heaven.
For the Lord said, “I am the resurrection and
the life, he who believes in me will not die forever.”
Lord, grant us all the grace to rejoice
with you and the angels that your
faithful servant has been taken up to Heaven.
For death in this world is only the beginning
of eternal joy and happiness made possible
by the death and resurrection of
your Son Jesus Christ Our Lord.
