Catholic cemeteries reflect Catholic beliefs. They offer a comforting atmosphere in which love for family and friends are remembered, hope is rekindled, and faith is awakened, renewed and strengthened.
By doing so they are proclaiming an important statement: that even in death, the body is worthy of great dignity and respect. In turn, the Resurrection of Jesus reminds us that the climax of redemption belongs both to the spirit and the flesh. In its funeral rites, the Church shows reverence to the mortal remains of the faithful departed in praying for their souls.
