Kevin Archbold 1966-2010

The younger brother of Matthew and Patrick Archbold, co-founders of Creative Minority Report, has passed away after losing his struggle with brain cancer. Those who have responded to calls for prayers should know that they have been heard, and that God has responded on His own terms, if in ways surpassing human understanding.

May the Mother of All Sorrows bring consolation to his family, especially his wife and children, that she may intercede for them in the days ahead.

Responsory for the Dead

V. Do not remember my sins, O Lord.
R. When you come to judge the world by fire.

V. Direct my way in your sight, O Lord, my God.
R. When you come to judge the world by fire.

V. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon him.
R. When you come to judge the world by fire.

V. Lord, have mercy.
R. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

V. Our Father ...

V. And lead us not into temptation.
R. But deliver us from evil.

V. From the gates of hell.
R. Deliver his soul, O Lord.

V. May he rest in peace.
R. Amen.

V. Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come to you.

V. Let us pray. Lord, welcome into your presence your son, Kevin, whom you have called from this life. Release him from all his sins, bless him with eternal light and peace, raise him up to live for ever with all your saints in the glory of the resurrection. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.
