Prayer for the Forgotten Dead


O merciful God, take pity on those souls who have no particular friends and intercessors to recommend them to You, who either through the negligence of those who are alive, or through length of time, are forgotten by all.

Spare them, O Lord, and remember your own when others forget to appeal to your mercy.

Let not the souls You have created be parted from You, their Creator.

May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
