Almighty and eternal God,
hear our prayers for your son, Mgr Fred Miles
whom you have called from this world to yourself.
Grant him light, happiness and peace.
Let him pass in safety through the gates of death,
and live for ever with all your saints
in the light you promised to Abraham
and to all his descendants in faith.
Guard him from all harm
and on that great day of resurrection and reward
raise him up with all your saints.
Pardon his sins and give him eternal life in your kingdom.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
May the soul of this faithful priest rest in peace.  Amen.
