A Catholic Funeral, revisited

Today, we celebrated a very large funeral for a young person....only 21 years old. Funerals for young people are usually big events, and this proved true today. I must admit that I'm very proud of our parish bereavement committee, and how they host a funeral like today's celebration. They are so attentive to the many details of hospitality and reaching out to young people who may not be familiar with the Catholic celebrations of funerals. I really hope that the way we celebrate helps people to grow in their faith!
