Think About It
- Recall your own experience of burying the dead. In what ways did you personally honour the life and dignity of the deceased?
- Catholic funerals are rich in symbolism and ritual. Which elements do you most value of the Requiem liturgy, in the tradition of the Church?
- One of the greatest challenges in this work of mercy is the ‘letting go’. Do the tenants of the Christian faith expressed in the Creed, aid this struggle? If so, how? If not, why?
