Please join us in praying for @fathercapo and his family. The Lord has called Home His faithful servant, Rafael Capo Pascual, a loving parent, a Veteran, and dad to our dear friend @fathercapo.
Accept this prayer which I offer You, merciful Father, for those who have died, those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith, and those whose faith in this life was known to You alone. Have mercy on them all and bring them into Your kingdom of peace and light without end where You and Your saints live in the happiness which this world has not known and cannot give. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
“The Catholic Church has taught for centuries that our prayers are of assistance to those who have died. We commend their soul to God’s mercy and pray for them. We can help them not only by our prayers, but also by offering a Mass in their name, by giving alms, by indulgences or other works of penance done for their benefit (CCC 1032).”
