In your hands, O Lord,
we humbly entrust our brothers, Archbishop Harry Flynn.
In this life you embraced him with your tender love;
deliver him now from every evil
and bid him eternal rest.

The old order has passed away:
welcome them into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain,
but fullness of peace and joy
with your Son and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
