Prayer over the Gifts

From Theodore's funeral. This is the translation from the Latin:

"O Lord, make holy these gifts offered to You, that, as the parents return to You the child whom You have given to them, they may be made worthy to joyfully embrace him in Your Kingdom. Through Christ our Lord."

Amen.

Yes, I guess we really don't think about the fact that these children are really not ours, but belong to the Lord.
May God grant you and your family peace and consolation.

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
Amen.
