Our 2012 All Saints’ Litany

November 8, 2012

Leader: Our eternal God, we lift our voices as your saints in united prayer to you: For our brothers and sisters in your family throughout the world, who walk in your love, and by their faithful obedience and steadfast hope show the same mind that was in Christ Jesus, especially those you have placed on our hearts to remember before you today, whom we lift up to you now, either silently or aloud (Silence); God of all the saints,
People: we give you thanks and praise.

Leader: For those who have been Baptized at St. Paul’s since All Saints’ of last year, and joined the family of the Church in the path of discipleship: Koen Conway-Gretz, Edwin Cowan, Dakota D’Arcy, Amanda de Vries, Brielle de Vries, Ryley Gosse, Erica Moore, Adam Nicholson, Kolten Pain, Evan Peters, Graydon Roberts, and Rebecca Wall; God of all the saints,
People: we give you thanks and praise.

Leader: For your unending love for those who have ended their earthly pilgrimage, whom we have committed at St. Paul’s into your loving arms since All Saints’ of last year: Jim Blevins, Carroll Eggertson, Elton Hellyer, Wesley Hollings, Sherry Lewis, Leonard Mountford, Olive Ponting, William Styba, and Irene Ullyott; God of all the saints,
People: we give you thanks and praise.

Leader: For the safe-keeping of all our loved ones who have died in your tender care, whom we now name before you, silently or out loud (Silence). Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord,
People: and let light perpetual shine upon them.

Leader: May their souls, and the souls of all the departed, through your mercy, rest in peace.
People: Amen.

Leader: God of all the saints, your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, by dying for us, conquered death and by rising again, restored life. May we then go forward eagerly to meet him, and after our life on earth be reunited with our brothers and sisters where every tear will be wiped away. We ask this through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
People: Amen.

(We prayed this Litany at our our 8:30 Service on November 4; print copies of it are available on the magazine rack in the Hall. We sang the hymn, “For All the Saints,” which is embedded below, at both our morning Services.)
