1916 Centenary Prayer of Remembrance

Print Friendly, PDF & Email



 Lord, Merciful and Kind,

I remember the men, women and children

who died during 1916 and throughout the

troubled journey of our island’s history.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha.


Look kindly I pray, on the people of Ireland

from all traditions, at home and abroad.

To you O God, we long to sing a new song of

compassion, inclusion and engagement in a

spirit of true freedom.


You know my frail heart and my frayed

history and now another day begins. Help me

to believe in beginnings, and sing a new song

for Ireland.


Moladh go deo le Dia

Praise God forever!
