LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Dies Iræ – Day Nineteen

Pie Iesu Domine,
dona eis requiem. Amen.

Lord, all pitying, Jesu blest;
Grant them Thine eternal rest.

The Sequence ends with the simple comment which, ultimately but discreetly, reminds us of the fundamental truth . . . we have no merit which can ensure redemption without the pity and love of Our Blessed Lord; and it was for us and our salvation that He not only came to earth, but gave His life.

Let us pray that His infinite loving generosity may save not only us, but all God’s children, however unworthy we all may be.
