Novena Prayer for Sr. Mary Assumption Ocampo RGS

Avelina Hizon Ocampo

(October 26, 1907 – December 10, 2009)


To you, O Lord, we humbly commend Sr. Mary Assumption. In her mortal life, You loved her dearly. Now that You have called her to a new life, we pray that You fulfill your promise of everlasting life for those who believe in You. Let Sr. Mary Assumption dwell in Your house of many mansions, dear Lord, where there is no pain or grief, just peace, serenity and joy.

O God, You have so loved the world that You gave your only Son to open the gates of Heaven. We beg you to welcome our beloved Sr. Mary Assumption, who in this life was a witness to Your word. She lived a life of deep faith and selfless service giving the best of herself to those around her.

Thank you, dear Lord, for what she was to us all, for the privilege of knowing and loving her and learning from her during the years she was with us.

We give Sr. Mary Assumption back to you, O God, whom you gave to us. As you did not lose her in giving her to us, so we do not lose her by her return. Not as the world gives, do you O Lord. For what you give You do not take away, for what is Yours is ours also. Life is eternal. Life is immortal. Death is only a horizon and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight.

Lift us up, that we may see further. Cleanse our eyes, that we may see life clearly. Draw us close to you, and prepare us also for that happy place so that where you are, we may be also, forever more.

Leader:       Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord.

All:              And let perpetual light shine upon her.

Leader:       May she rest in peace.

All:              Amen.

Leader:       May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through   

                  the mercy of God rest in peace.

All:             Amen.
