Sermon

Commemoration of the Faithful Departed

P    I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the lord henceforth” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them” (Rev. 14:13).

Let us remember with thanksgiving those who have gone before us with the sign of faith, for they were created by God to offer Him praise and thanksgiving forever, and he gave them new life through His Son in Holy Baptism, and nourished them in the company of His people at His holy table, and in His mercy has summoned them to His nearer presence so that they may continue in joyful service of Him forever.

The names are read of those directly connected to this seminary community who have died since the previous All Saints’ Day. A bell is rung after each name and a brief silence follows to reflect upon the promises of God granted to these saints through their baptism into Christ.

P    In joyful expectation of the resurrection to life, we remember before You, O Lord, in our hearts and minds all our departed family and friends who have gone before us in faith.

Hymn                                                                                          LSB 767 “Jesus, Remember Me”

The hymn is sung first by the choir, then continues with the congregation joining in. As the hymn is sung, the assembly is invited to come forward to light a candle at one of the stations in remembrance and thanksgiving for any saint, living or dead.

The rite concludes:

P    Let us pray.

Lord, remember your church throughout the world; make all its members grow in love for You and for one another. As You have received our brothers and sisters who have gone to their rest in the hope of the resurrection to eternal life, bring us at the last with them into the light of your presence, that in union with all Your saints we may give You glory forever, through Your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

C    Amen.

Concerning the Divine Service

The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on our campus in the confession and glad confidence that our Lord Jesus, as He says, gives His very body and blood under the bread and wine for us Christians to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sin. In joyful obedience to the clear teaching of our Lord, those are invited to His table who trust His words, repent of all sin, set aside any refusal to forgive, and forgive as He forgives us. Because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and so are unable to receive the Sacrament, are invited to meditate on God’s Word in the distribution hymns and pray for the day when divisions will have ceased.

This service of Holy Communion is hosted by Peace Lutheran Church, St. Louis, Rev. Jon Furgeson, Senior Pastor.

The rite of Individual Confession and Absolution is available through Chaplain Sieveking. sievekingp@csl.edu. “When I urge you to go to confession, I am simply urging you to be a Christian.” (Large Catechism, Brief Exhortation, 32).

To submit prayer requests for daily chapel, please submit them via SemNet: Semnet>Resources>Chapel>Prayer Request.

The Seminary community gathers for daily worship at 9:35 a.m. Monday through Friday, when classes are in session, in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus. During our daily chapel services, we rejoice in receiving the gifts that God gives us in His Word and Sacraments. The worship schedule generally follows the orders of service from the Lutheran Service Book (LSB). Holy Communion is distributed each Wednesday and is sponsored by a Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod congregation.

The public is invited to attend chapel services in person or watch via live stream.
