We receive the body of our brother/sister .... with confidence in God, the giver of life, who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead. Grant, Lord, that we who are baptized into the death of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ may continually put to death our evil desires and be buried with him; that through the grave and gate of death we may pass to our joyful resurrection; through his merits, who died and was buried, and rose again for us, your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
