The Art of Dying Well


Go forth, Christian soul, from this world

in the name of God the almighty Father,

who created you,

in the name of Jesus Christ,

Son of the living God,

who suffered for you,

in the name of the Holy Spirit,

who was poured out upon you,

go forth, faithful Christian.

May you live in peace this day,

may your home be with God,

with Mary, the virgin Mother of God,

with Joseph, and all the angels and saints.
