Funerals, Mass Intentions, and Purgatory

The loss of a loved one is never easy.  It is a milestone moment in their life and ours.  Our Catholic funeral rituals are designed to help us know that God is with us in our mourning and to renew us in the hope of the Resurrection.

My son, shed tears for one who is dead with wailing and bitter lament; as is only proper, prepare the body, and do not absent yourself from the burial”

Sirach 38:16
