Here are some prayers for those dying, in their agony, and for those recently deceased.

Some people at our chapel have started saying the  Prayers for the Dying in their Agony daily for someone who has no one to pray for them.   Wonderful way to make friends in eternity.

We pray for the souls in purgatory to help get them out but we forget to pray to help souls get in, rather than going to hell.  

Great spiritual act of mercy

It is a pious tradition among the Dominicans to say the entire Psalter (all 150 psalms) when anyone in the Order or parish dies. It is recommended to say or chant the Psalter as soon as possible beseeching Christ to have mercy on the recently departed soul.

Thank you for these beautiful prayers. They are so different than  the Prayers for the Dying found in the Pieta prayerbook. I found some very disturbing phrases in those prayers.

I have heard that's the prayer book the "seers" of Medjugorje say is there favourite, if that doesn't tell you enough right there.

When Lillian and her husband first compiled the Pieta Prayer Book it looked different from what is being passed off today.
As they never put a copyright on it, many people have "updated" it and of course Lillian and her husband aren't here to object.  Maybe the "seers" have an old copy.

That is why I asked Matthew to post these Prayers for the Dying here just as they are from the 1944-61 Rituale Romanum.

The Prayers for one Recently Deceased come from the prayer book Blessed Be God.

I may say the De Profundis and sometimes I say the Vespers of the Dead.

A friend recently taught me to pray the breviary, using "Morning Praise and Evensong" (compiled by William G. Storey, D.S.M.).  On p. 307 it has an office which may be said for All Souls day "but also on the occasion of a funeral and as a form of intercessory prayer for the dead at any time of the year".

The Prayers for one Recently Deceased come from the prayer book Blessed Be God.
Blessed Be God is a wonderful book, I recently bought it.
