The Catholic funeral ritual is one of the Church's greatest gifts, celebrating belief in forgiveness and resurrection. The Church opens wide its doors to deceased Catholics -saints and sinners of every stripe-for funeral Masses and memorial Masses. Like the prodigal son, Catholics who have been estranged from the Church are as welcome as Catholics who attended daily Mass. This booklet is intended to help readers plan the funeral rites of someone for whom they care for deeply. People may be reading this booklet on some of the darkest days in their life, just before or just after the death of a loved one. That is sacred time for family and friends. Planning and making practical decisions based on faith and hope will help those who are grieving transcend the pain. This comprehensive, full-colour booklet provides worksheet pages for filling in choices of readings and music. It is an important guide for pastors to offer families planning a funeral. It will help them to make it a memorable, uplifting experience.
