Then I heard a voice from heaven say to me, 'Write down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord! Blessed indeed, the Spirit says; now they can rest for ever after their work, since their good deeds go with them.' ...Revelations 14:13

Why choose burial in a Catholic Cemetery?

 

As people of faith, we look forward to sharing in the bodily  resurrection of Jesus Christ and life everlasting.  Honoring the Christian dead and providing  them with a fitting place for burial are concrete expression of this hope.  For this reason, one of the duties of the  Church is to have its own cemeteries, blessed and reserved for the faithful.

 

Catholic cemeteries have always been sacred ground and a  perpetual trust.  Cemeteries point to the  sacredness of life and Christ promise of the resurrection of the body at the  end of time.  As such, sacred grounds are  an effective reminder of the body, the earthly dwelling of the soul, is itself  a creation of God, manifesting His life and goodness.  Though now laying in death, the body will be  raised up at the end of time and joined once again to the soul, so that the  whole human person may experience the joys of Heaven and share fully in the  Lord promise of eternal life.  It is, then, a truly precious treasure which our Catholic cemeteries hold and  guard.
