we have not loved our neighbors, and we have not heard the cry of the needy. Forgive us, we pray. Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Pastor:
Hear the good news. Christ died for us while we were yet sinners; that proves God’s love toward us. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

Thanks be to God. Amen.

For the multitude of the faithful whom we cannot remember for the vastness of their number and the distance of their days we bless your holy name. For the multitude of the faithful whom we do remember because they have touched our lives and given instruction and inspiration, we bless your holy name. THE NAMING OF THE HONORED DEAD
