Memorial service for of all the faithful departed

Memorial service for of all the faithful departed

On Friday night (service of the Meatfare Saturday) we shall pray for the departed, so that together with us they also stand at the right hand of the Judge, and especially for those who were stolen suddenly by death in a foreign country, on the sea and on impassable mountains, on cliffs, from starvation, from plagues and hunger, in war, in fires, from cold, and have undergone all kinds of other generic types of death, and also about poor and needy, and in general for all who “have not received commemoration in the legitimate psalms and hymns”.
