In memoriam. In your prayers remember the soul of Rev. James C. Barry Born Dec. 15, 1904 Ordained April 5, 1929 Died Sept. 29, 1939. Prayer. Grant we beseech Thee, O Lord, that the soul of Thy servant James, whom Thou dids't honor in this life with the sacred office of the priesthood, may rejoice in the glory of heaven for evermore. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Our Father -- Hail Mary (front) Psalm 129. Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice. Let Thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication. If Thou O Lord wilt mark iniquities, Lord, who shall stand it? For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness, and by reason of Thy law I wated for Thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on His word, my soul hath hoped in the Lord. From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord. Because with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is plentiful redemption. And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, And let perpetual light shine upon him. May the angels lead thee into Paradise; may the martyrs receive thee to Jerusalem the holy city. May the choirs of the angels receive thee and mayest thou with the once poor Lazarus, have rest everlasting. (back)
