‘A Catholic funeral is a service performed by the Christian community for the benefit of the dead. It expresses the sorrow of the survivors, yet it always has a Paschal Character. Ultimately, we die in Christ so as to celebrate with Him the feast of the Resurrection.’ Catechism of the Catholic Church- Reference [1686-1690]
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
