We thank the Lord for the gift of his life, for his dedication and devotion. Through the intercession of the Saints, may the Lord welcome him to his eternal rest.

When a missionary dies, we should celebrate the last rites with devotion, fraternal love, and simplicity. We should remember all our brothers who have gone before us in the service of the Gospel, commending them to the Lord with the prescribed prayers, especially in the celebration of the Eucharist.

We should show the same reverence and respect for our departed parents and for deceased collaborators of the Congregation.
