Prayer and farewell to Father Tom

At Benediction this morning we prayed for Fr Tom from an adapted prayer:

“Eternal Spirit, Earth-maker, Pain-bearer, Life-giver, Source of all that is and shall be, Father and Mother of us all, Loving God, in whom is heaven, Enfold Fr Tom with your grace.
May his home be a place of your love,
Your forgiveness and your freedom.
May your will be done in him and through him, This day and for ever.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.”
