Words for a Catholic Wake

Prayer in Time of Sorrow

Father of all mercies and God of consolation, you love us eternally and transform the shadows of death into the dawn of life.  Look upon our grief; be our refuge and comfort so that our sadness and sorrow may turn into the light and peace of your presence.  In dying, your Son destroyed death; in rising, He restored life.  Grant that at the end of our earthly pilgrimage, we may be found in His company with our brothers and sisters.  There you shall wipe away every tear.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Columnist Bob Novak, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor said, "A priest who visited me told me I've been given a chance to prepare myself.  So I began to think about my life and what I've done right and not done right and to prepare myself for the last days.  I've found that reassuring."  Mr. Novak died August 18, 2009.

In Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Spain, just outside of Barcelona, 462 solar panels have been placed on top of the cemetery's mausoleums.  "The best tribute we can pay to our ancestors, whatever your religion may be, is to generate clean energy for new generations," said Esteve Serret, Director of Conste-Live Energy.  The panels produce enough energy for 60 homes for a year.

Saint Mary Church in Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania, in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, is being converted into Saint Mary Mausoleum with 880 crypts and 712 niches.  The commitment chapel will seat 200 mourners.  "We are very excited about the unique project that will convert the former Saint Mary Church building into a chapel mausoleum. The church building is a treasure that will now have new life," said Annabelle McGannon, Executive Director of the Catholic Cemeteries Association.

The Diocese of Phoenix is setting aside 2,000 plots in Holy Redeemer Catholic Cemetery in Phoenix, Arizona, for Eastern Rite Catholics.  Eastern Rite Catholics can, of course, choose to be buried anywhere in the cemetery.
