Contents Deus, qui nos patrem et matrem honorare
O God, Who Hast Commanded us to Honor our Father and Mother

From the Roman Missal, opening prayer (collect) for Mass for the Dead.

DEUS, qui nos patrem et matrem honorare praecepisti: miserere clementer animabus patris et matris meae eorumque peccata dimitte (vel animae patris mei eiusque peccata dimitte, vel animae matris meae eiusque peccata dimitte): meque eos (vel meque eum, vel meque eam) in aeternae claritatis gaudio fac videre. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen. O GOD, who hast commanded us to honor our father and mother: in Thy mercy have pity on the souls of my father and mother (or the soul of my father, or the soul of my mother) and forgive them their trespasses (or forgive him his trespasses, or forgive her her trespasses); and make me to see them (or him, or her) again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Amen.

From the Raccolta #599 (S. P. Ap. Sept. 12, 1935), from the Roman Missal.
