The 4th Commandment

10CommandmentsRemember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. For six days you shall labour and do all your work. But the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.

Exodus 20:8-12 – nrsv

† In Memoriam.

For the souls of the faithful departed especially,    . . . .

together with all those we love and see no longer.

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
            and let light perpetual shine upon them.
