A reader writes:
My friend’s son, whom they named William, was in distress, and labor was induced yesterday. He died before delivery early this morning. Their parents and priest were with them. William will be interred in a family plot following a funeral. If you would say a prayer for William’s soul and for their consolation, I should be ever grateful.
May William’s soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Grant grace, peace, strength, and consolation to his family and all who love him. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
