November Work of Mercy - To Bury The Dead

The Corporal Work of Mercy - To Bury the Dead, is a perfect act that we can practice throughout the month of November by remembering the holy souls in purgatory, particularly those souls who have no one else to remember them. An appropriate prayer for the faithful departed is Psalm 129, De Profundis. I will be including a nine day novena as well as prayers for each day of the week so please check back.

De profúndis clamávi ad te, Dómine: Dómine, exáudi vocem meam.
Fiant aures tuae intendéntes: in vocem deprecationes meae.
Si iniquitátes observaveris, Dómine: Dómine, quis sustinébit.
Quia apud te propitiátio est: et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Dómine.
Sustinuit ánima mea in verbo ejus: sperávit ánima mea in Dómino.
A custodia matutina usque ad noctem: specret Israel in Dómino.
Quia apud Dóminum misericordia: et copiósa apud eum redémptio.
Et ipse redimet Israel, ex ómnibus iniquitátibus ejus.
