Oratio - Poem by Oscar Dhonesquil Esquilona
Source and Giver of life,
Your glory is to see man fully alive
You let us experience
The beauty of this life in this world.
We know that You are a just God
You will to bestow life
And also You have the authority to take it back
We thank you for the gift of life,
Long may it be or short
Help us to accept the truth that we all die
And comfort us when we find it hard to accept death
Death of our loved ones and of our own
Give us hope to see your face
Your face that your faithful desire the most.
We ask You, grant salvation to the souls departed
And comfort those who have lost their loved ones.
May we all be gathered in Your banquet
As we await the Second Coming of your Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who lives and reigns with you
And the Holy Spirit, One God
Forever and ever. Amen.
