As you set out on this last great journey,
this last which is first,
may your spirit be free from all that would impede you.
May memory fill your mind with gladness and gratitude
for all that your life has been,
all that you have known and loved,
and all that life has given you of love.
Let the immeasurable mercy and generosity of God
heal your heart of any guilt or pain that lingers,
and may Mary and the saints show you
the path of fearless trust
to help you on your journey.
Have courage, soul,
a great and hospitable home is there for you.
The Love of all love waits to greet you.
