Father Joseph Mills' prayer
Dewar remembrance book
Rev Alexander introduced Father Joseph Mills, from the Catholic parish of Corpus Christi in Knightswood, the centre of Donald Dewar's constituency.

"Father Mills was himself a strong friend of Donald and a co-worker with him in the work of the constituency."

Father Joe Mills:

"Let us pray:

"Almighty Father, we ask you to give us a deep sense of your presence with us today.

"We need to know that you are here with us, in this time of special need for all of us.

"We pray that you will comfort and console Donald's family, and all those nearest and dearest to him. We pray for his colleagues.

"For those who shared his political beliefs and for those in other parties who held him in great esteem and recognised his parting as a great loss.

"May they all be inspired by the memory of Donald's commitment and dedication.

"Finally, Lord, as we now prepare to hear your holy word today grant us the vision of your kingdom.

"A kingdom of justice and peace for all people - especially those most vulnerable - those who Donald delighted in serving.

"We ask this, in God's holy name

"To whom be glory this day, and forever,

"Amen."
