Prayer for the Unknown Dead on Samhain

We pray for those who die Unknown:

The old ones who die alone in their bed,

we see you

The neglected and abused,

we see you

The outcast who are pushed out through no fault of their own,

we see you

The ones who are mentally ill and the neurodivergent,

we see you

The poor, the hungry, the refugee,

we see you

The ones who are killed because of race, religion, or identity,

we see you

The ones who suffered in silence, without a voice,

we see you.

We see you all. The ones who died without a name, without family, without acknowledgement. We light these candles for you because we see you. We see you and honor you as our own Beloved Dead.
