St. Moses

The biblical saint project continues with the man who may be the biggest Old Testament name of all.  Here is the Martyrology entry:

September 4

The commemoration of St. Moses, the prophet, whom God chose to free his people who were oppressed in Egypt and to lead them into the promised land; to whom also he revealed himself at Mount Sinai, saying, “I am who am,” and to whom he gave the law which would govern the live of the chosen people.  This servant of God, full of days, passed away on Mount Nebo in the land of Morab across from the promised land.


May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

V. Precious in the sight of the Lord

R. Is the death of his holy ones.

V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.  And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in pace.

R. Amen
