At the end of our life, respect and dignity for the human body remain important, and comfort for the bereaved family and friends may be felt in the ministry of the funeral rites through the Church’s ministers and the faithful. The expression of the faith in the resurrection pervades all the Church’s words and action at the time of the funeral and related celebrations.

Christians show respect and honour to the bodies of the dead, and the places they rest, since the body was marked with the seal of the Trinity at the time of Baptism and became a temple of the Holy Spirit.

Catholic funeral rites offer praise, worship and thanksgiving to God for the gift of life. The Mass, as the memorial of Christ’s death and the resurrection, is the principal celebration of the Christian funeral.
