Nick Gale RIP

Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Nick Gale, formerly Director of Music at Southwark RC Cathedral, and one of the country’s leading experts on Gregorian Chant, who was sadly killed in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident on the morning of Tuesday 10 March 2015.

Archbishop Peter will offer a Requiem Mass for the repose of his soul on the evening of Wednesday 11 March and Bishop John will do so as soon as possible.

Te, Dómine, sancte Pater, omnípotens aetérne Deus, supplices deprecámur pro anima fámulæ tuæ Nicholae.,
quam de hoc sǽculo ad te venire iussísti; ut ei dignéris dare locum refrigérii, lucis et pacis.
Líceat ei portas mortis sine offensióne transíre et in mansiónibus sanctórum et in luce sancta permáneat, quam olim Abrahæ et eius sémini promisísti.
Nullam eius ánima sustíneat læsionem, sed, cum magnus dies ille resurrectiónis et remuneratiónis advénerit, resuscitáre eam, Dómine, una cum sanctis et eléctis dignéris; dimíttas ei ómnia delícta atque peccáta, tecúmque immortalitátis vitam et regnum consequátur æternum.
R. Amen.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei.

Requiescat in pace.
