We pray for the repose of the soul of Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor who died today, 1 September 2017, surrounded by his family and friends. 

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that the soul of your departed servant Cardinal Cormac,
to whom you committed the care of your family,
may, with the manifold fruit of his labours,
enter into the eternal gladness of his Lord.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
May his soul
and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
