Eternal Memory

An Eastern Christian prayer for the faithful departed

By

Prayer Rope

This prayer is used in Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches and is the counterpart to the Western prayer Eternal Rest. The "eternal memory" mentioned in the prayer is remembrance by God, which is another way of saying that the soul has entered heaven and enjoys eternal life.

Eternal Memory

Eternal memory. Eternal memory. Grant to your servant(s), O Lord, blessed repose and eternal memory.
