For the Faithful Departed

Part of being in a Sodality is praying for other members, whether living or dead.
For the dead

Mr Arthur Crumley, former MC in Chief of the LMS, who gave support and encouragement to us on our foundation.

Dominic Mary, TOP, who died on 21st October last year, and was one of the founder members of this Sodality.

For all those who have served, supported, organized, or priests who have celebrated, the Traditional Latin Mass especially in the years since 1970.

Particularly this year for Fr Hugh Thwaites SJ.

For those souls in purgatory who were most devoted to the service of the Altar.

Prayer for the Living and the Dead

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui vivorum dominaris simul et mortuorum, omniumque misereris, quos tuos fide et opere futuros esse praenoscis: te supplices exoramus; ut, pro quibus effundere preces decrevimus, quosque vel praesens saeculum adhuc in carne retinet, vel futurum jam exutos corpore suscepit, intercedentibus omnibus Sanctis tuis, pietatis tuae clementia omnium delictorum suorum veniam consequantur.
Almighty and everlasting God, who hast dominion over both the living and the dead, and hast mercy on all whom Thou foreknowest shall be Thine by faith and works: we humbly beseech Thee that all for whom we have resolved to make supplication, whether the present world still holds them in the flesh, or the world to come has already received them out of the body, may, through the intercession of all Thy saints, obtain of Thy goodness and clemency pardon for all their sins.
(Collect Pro Vivis et Defunctis, Roman Missal)
