Pope Francis recently began a series of catecheses on the Eucharist and the celebration of the Mass during
his Wednesday audiences.
“The Mass is first and foremost a prayer, indeed the prayer par excellence. For at every Mass we encounter
God in his word and in the body and blood of Christ. Made in God’s image and likeness, we were made to know him, to love and to serve him. In prayer, we experience God’s closeness and love; we speak to him, but we also learn to listen to his voice speaking in our hearts. Jesus himself teaches us, as he did his disciples, how to pray.
From him we learn to call God our Father, to trust in his love, and to be constantly surprised
by the signs of that love. When Jesus speaks of our need to be “reborn” (cf. Jn 3:15), he is in fact inviting us to accept his gift of new life in the Spirit. By his sacrifice on the cross, he has atoned for all our sins and enabled us to make a new beginning, to lead a truly spiritual life. In our encounter with him in prayer, and above all in the Eucharist, we experience the consolation of his presence, the grace of his forgiveness and the joy of his invitation to live fully our vocation as God’s beloved children….
When we go to Mass, maybe we come five minutes before and we start talking with the person beside me...
but it is not time to chit-chat, it is the moment of silence to prepare for dialogue. It's a time to recollect
one's heart to prepare for encountering Jesus. But silence is so important. This, therefore, is the greatest
grace: to be able to experience that the Mass and the Eucharist is a privileged moment to be with Jesus, and,
through Him, with God and with [our] brothers and sisters.”
-Pope Francis, 11/15/2017
But if Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then neither has Christ been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then empty [too] is our preaching; empty, too, your faith. Then we are also false witnesses to God, because we testified against God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised, and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins. Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are the most pitiable people of all. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead came also through a human being. For just as in Adam all die, so too in Christ shall all be brought to life, but each one in proper order:
Christ the firstfruits; then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ; then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has destroyed every sovereignty and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death, for “he subjected everything under his feet.” But when it says that everything has been subjected, it is clear that it excludes the one who subjected everything to him. When everything is subjected to him, then the Son himself will [also] be subjected to the one who subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

Project Rachel is a program of Catholic Community Services.
During the month of November, when we traditionally remember the faithful departed, we are looking into
the Catholic view of death and our practices surrounding it.
Last year the Vatican put out a document which caused a bit of a stir, even though nothing in it was new. It discussed Catholic practice regarding the proper disposition of the remains of loved ones.
Specifically, it required the burial or interment of bodily remains, even cremated ones, in a sacred place.
It restated the Church’s preference for burial of the body over cremation, and noted that, even when cremation is chosen for legitimate reasons, the ashes could not be scattered, nor preserved in mementos, jewelry, or other objects. In most circumstances, it is also not permitted to keep ashes in one’s home (to do so requires specific permission from the Bishop and is only granted in exceptional cases).
It explains this: “From the earliest times, Christians have desired that the faithful departed become the objects of the Christian community’s prayers and remembrance. Their tombs have become places of prayer, remembrance, and reflection. The faithful departed remain part of the Church who believes ‘in the communion of all the faithful of Christ, those who are pilgrims on earth, the dead who are being purified, and the blessed in heaven, all together forming one Church.’ The reservation of the ashes of the departed in a sacred place ensures that they are not excluded from the prayers and remembrance of their family or the Christian community. It prevents the faithful departed from being forgotten, or their remains from being shown a lack of respect, which eventuality is
possible, most especially once the immediately subsequent generation has too passed away.” (Instruction A d resurgendum cum Christo, 5)
This also serves as a reminder of what a blessing it is to have a parish cemetery, where we are able to
remember and involve those who came before us in our prayers, as we did in the evening of All Souls’ Day.
During the month of November, when we traditionally remember the faithful departed, we are looking into the Catholic view of death and our practices surrounding it.
As Catholics our beliefs about death inform our practices concerning our care for the deceased. One of these beliefs is the resurrection of the body.
In the Creed we profess that we ‘look forward to the resurrection of the dead”. We are human beings, a unique sort of creature that has both a physical and a spiritual existence– we are a union of a body and a soul. Unlike some dualist heresies that have popped up over many centuries (Manichaeism) which believed that the body, and indeed the material creation, was evil, we believe as Christians that the body is created good, and raised even higher by God’s grace in Jesus Christ. Thus, when we die, there is a fundamental incompleteness about us as long as we don’t have a body. This incompleteness is remedied in the resurrection of the body at the end of time.
This belief in the resurrection is what has led to the traditional preference for burial of the body. This is a beautiful symbol of awaiting the resurrection of the dead. For many centuries the church forbade cremation because people in those times would choose it as a way of denying the resurrection! Today the church recognizes that cremation may be chosen for legitimate reasons, but it still prefers burial, and even if cremation is chosen, also prefers that the body be present for the funeral and that the cremation take place afterwards. In other words, cremation may be chosen, especially for financial reasons, but if you think about it, the symbolism of it doesn’t express much of the Christian view of death and the value of the body.
Next week we will look at why the Church requires the faithful to be buried or otherwise interred, and why we aren’t to keep loved ones’ remains at home.
