For over thirty years, nearly one million bereaved Catholic
families have drawn comfort from the pastoral wisdom of the late Msgr.
Joseph M. Champlin in
Through Death to Life. The new edition of this leading
Catholic funeral planning resource contains all the approved lectionary
readings and other liturgical texts needed to celebrate a funeral Mass,
bringing together in one place all the official liturgical texts needed
for planning a Catholic funeral Mass.
This accessible, easy-to-use liturgical aid provides a practical tool
for priests, deacons, and lay pastoral ministers as they help grieving
Catholics plan the funeral of a loved one. Families can select the
readings and prayers that they find most fitting and record them on an
easy-to-follow selection sheet. This sheet is then passed on to the
presiding priest or his designate so that he can prepare the liturgy. Paperback; 128 pgs.
