Lauds from the Office of the Dead
Office of the Dead – Lauds –
We would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.
~1 Thessalonians 4: 13-14
~When there is a funeral scheduled at St. Augustine’s House, the hymns, Psalms, readings, and various responses from the Office of the Dead are sometimes used in place of the regular daily prayers.
