Funeral Mass for Ann Marie Hefferin
Almighty God and Father,
It is our certain faith
That your Son, who died on the cross, was raised from the dead,
The firstfruits of all who have fallen asleep.
Grant that through this mystery
Your servant Ann Marie, who has gone to her rest in Christ,
May share in the joy of his resurrection.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
Ecclesiastes, 3 : 1 - 8 ; 14 , 15
There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every purpose under the heavens.
A time to be born; and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them; A time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces.
A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away.
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to be silent, and a time to speak.
Whatever God does will endure forever; there is no adding to it, or taking from it.
God has done this so that we may hold him in highest reverence.
What now is….has already been; What is to be….already is; And God restores what would otherwise be displaced.
R/. The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
Beside restful waters he leads me;
He refreshes my soul. R/.
He guides me in right paths
For his name’s sake.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side
With your rod and your staff
That give me courage. R/.
You spread the table before me
In the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup overflows. R/.
Only goodness and kindness follow me
All the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
For years to come. R/.
2 Timothy, 4 : 7 - 8
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
From now on a merited crown awaits me; On that day, the Lord, Just judge that he is,
Will award it to me- And not only to me, But to all who have longed for his appearing
with eager longing.
