Go forth, Christian soul, out of this world, in the Name of God the Father Almighty, Who created thee; in the Name of Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, Who suffered for thee; in the Name of the Holy Ghost, Who was poured forth upon thee; in the name of the glorious and ever-blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God; in the name of St. Joseph, chaste spouse of the same Virgin; in the name of the Angels and Archangels; in the name of the Thrones and Dominations; in the name of the Principalities and Powers; in the name of the heavenly Virtues, Cherubim and Seraphim; in the name of the holy Apostles and Evangelists; in the name of the holy Martyrs and Confessors; in the name of the holy Monks and Hermits; in the name of the holy Virgins and of all the Saints of God: may your place be this day in peace, and your abode in holy Sion. Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

O merciful and gracious God, O God who, according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies, forgivest the sins of such as repent, and graciously remittest the guilt of their past offenses, mercifully regard Thy handmaid, Rebecca, and grant her a full discharge from all her sins, who most earnestly begged it of Thee. Remove, O merciful Father, whatever is corrupt in her through human frailty, or by the snares of the devil; and associate her as a member redeemed to the unity of Thy Body the Church. Have pity, Lord, on her groanings, have pity on her tears, remember her contrition in her last days, and forgive whatever was lacking in her last confession, for Thou alone art all-holy and perfect. Through Christ our Lord.
R.Amen.

I commend thee to Almighty God, dearly beloved sister, and commit thee to His mercy whose creature thou art; that, having paid the debt of humanity by passing through death, thou mayest return to thy Maker, who formed thee out of the earth. May the glorious company of Angels meet thee; may the council of the Apostles who shall judge the world greet thee; may the triumphant army of white-robed Martyrs come out to welcome thee; may the band of shining Confessors, crowned with lilies, encircle thee; may the choir of joyous Virgins receive thee; and unto the bosom of blessed rest may the embrace of the Patriarchs clasp thee; may St. Joseph, most consoling Patron of the dying, lift thee up in holy hope. May Mary, the holy Mother of God, lovingly cast upon thee her eyes of mercy. May Jesus Christ appear to thee with a mild and joyful countenance, and appoint thee a place among those who are to stand before Him for ever. Mayest thou be a stranger to all that is punished with darkness, chastised with flames, and condemned to torments. May the most wicked enemy, with all his evil spirits, be forced to give way: may he tremble at thine approach in the of Angels, and with confusion fly away into vast chaos of eternal night. Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them hate Him flee from before His face. As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish away: as wax melts before fire, so let the wicked perish in the presence of God. But may the just rejoice before God: and be delighted with gladness.  May then all the legions of hell be confounded and put to shame and may none of the ministers of Satan dare to stop thee in thy way. May Christ deliver thee from torments, Who was crucified for thee. May He deliver thee from everlasting death, Who vouchsafed to die for thee. May Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, place thee in the ever-verdant lawns of His paradise, and may He, the true Shepherd, acknowledge thee for one of His flock. May He absolve thee from all thy sins, and place thee at His right hand in the midst of His elect. Mayest thou see thy Redeemer face to face; and, standing always in His presence, behold with happy eyes the most clear Truth. And mayest thou be placed among the companies of the blessed, and enjoy the sweetness of the contemplation of thy God forever. Amen.


Receive, O Lord, Thy handmaid into the place of salvation, which she hopes for from Thy mercy.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid from all the dangers of hell, and from the bonds of its punishments, and from all tribulations.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Enoch and Elias from the common death of the world.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Noe from the flood.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Abraham from Ur of the Chaldeans.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Lot from Sodom and from the flame of fire.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Moses from the hands of Pharaoh, king of the Egyptians.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Daniel from the lions' den.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver the Three Children from the burning fiery furnace, and from the hand of a wicked king.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Susanna from a false accusation.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver David from the hand of King Saul and from the hand of Goliath.
R. Amen.

Deliver, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, as Thou didst deliver Peter and Paul out of prison.
R. Amen.

And as Thou didst deliver Thy most blessed Virgin and Martyr, Thecla, from three most cruel torments, so vouchsafe to deliver the soul of this Thy handmaid, Rebecca, and make her to rejoice with Thee in the bliss of heaven.
R. Amen.


I commend unto Thee, O Lord, the soul of Thy handmaid, Rebecca, and I beseech Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, that Thou wouldst not refuse to place in the bosom of Thy Patriarchs a soul for whose sake Thou didst mercifully come down upon earth.  Acknowledge, O Lord, Thy creature, made, not by strange gods, but by Thee, the only living and true God: for there is no other God beside Thee, and none that doeth according to Thy works.  Make glad her soul, O Lord, with Thy presence, and remember not her old sins, and the excesses which wrath or heat of evil desire may have aroused.  For though she sinned, she did not deny the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost; but believed, and had a zeal for God, and faithfully worshipped Thee as her God, and Creator of all things.

Remember not, O Lord, I beseech Thee, the sins of her youth nor her ignorances; but, according to Thy great mercy, be mindful of her in the brightness of Thy glory.  Let the heavens be opened unto her, may the Angels rejoice with her.  Into Thy kingdom, O Lord, receive Thy handmaid.  Let the Archangel St. Michael, whom Thou hast appointed the chief of the heavenly host, conduct her.  Let the holy Angels of God come forth to meet her, and carry her into the city of the heavenly Jerusalem.  Let blessed Peter the Apostle, to whom were given by God the keys of the kingdom of heaven, receive her.  Let St. Paul the Apostle, who was counted worthy to be a vessel of election, assist her.  Let St. John, the beloved Apostle of God, to whom the secrets of heaven were revealed, intercede for her.  Let all the holy Apostles, who received from Jesus Christ the power of binding and loosing, pray for her.  Let all the Saints and Elect of God, who, in this world, suffered torments for the name of Christ, intercede for her: that, being loosed from the bonds of the flesh, she may come to the glory of the heavenly kingdom, through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, with Thee and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, through all the ages of ages. Amen.


May the most clement Virgin Mary, Mother of God, kindest comforter of them that mourn, commend to her Divine Son the soul of His handmaid, Rebecca, that through her maternal intercession our sister may be freed from the terrors of death and in her company joyfully enter the desired heavenly home. Amen.


To thee I have recourse, Saint Joseph, patron of the dying; and to thee, at whose blessed death watchfully assisted Jesus and Mary, by both these dearest pledges I earnestly recommend the soul of our Lord's handmaid Rebecca, now beyond her last agony in this life, that she may by thy protection be delivered from the snares of the devil and from eternal death, and may merit to attain everlasting joy. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Rejoice with the saints, dear Rebecca, in the Light of the Blessed Trinity. Be at peace until we meet again. After that, too, I hope. May God bless you greatly.
