~It is a long-standing Dominican custom to pray for our deceased brothers and sisters each evening.~
V. Out of the depths, I cry to you, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice.
R. Let your ears be attentive to the sound of my voice in supplication.
V. If you, O Lord, mark iniquities, Lord, who can stand?
R. But with you is forgiveness, that you may be revered.
V. I trust in the Lord; my soul trusts in his word:
R. My soul waits for the Lord; more than sentinels wait for the dawn.
V. More than sentinels wait for the dawn, let Israel wait for the Lord.
R. For with the Lord is kindness and with him is plenteous redemption:
V. And he will redeem Israel from all their iniquities.
R. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
V. From the gates of hell.
R. Rescue their souls, O Lord.
V. O God, creator and redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of your servants and handmaids, the remission of all their sins. That they may obtain by our loving prayers the forgiveness they have always desired. Who lives and reigns forever.
V. May they rest in peace.
