Death rites. What does this mean in practice?

Recommended Posts

Christian funerals are important because they show respect for the dead. They also give the family and friends of the deceased time to mourn and show their grief.

Christians are sometimes buried and sometimes cremated. If they are buried, the priest will say words from the Bible to reflect that God created humans from the dust of the Earth in the book of Genesis, and that they are now returning to the Earth.

Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
1928 Book of Common Prayer

Anglican funeral services will involve readings, hymns and prayers, and a eulogy, which is a speech about the person who died.

Catholics have a Requiem Mass where many special prayers are said for the soul of the deceased. They may also celebrate Holy Communion which reminds them of Jesus' Last Supper and the sacrifice he made for the sins of people. Many believe that this sacrifice gave Christians the opportunity of eternal life in Heaven.
