Holy Father, Eternal, and Almighty God, we ask you for Laura, whom you called from this world. Give her happiness, light and peace. May she, having passed through death, participate in eternal light with the saints, as you promised Abraham and his descendants. May her soul suffer no more and deign to resurrect her with the saints on the day of resurrection and reward. Forgive her sins and wash away their stains so that she may reach immortal life with you in the eternal kingdom.
Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
