The essence of the funeral ritual

cremationLike birthdays and marriages, funeral ritual is a public traditional and symbolic means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts, and feelings about the loss of someone dear to us.

Baptism celebrates the birth of a child and that child's acceptance into the church family. Birthday parties honor the passing of another year in the life of someone we love. Weddings publicly affirm the private love shared by two people.

The funeral home ritual, too, is a public, traditional and symbolic means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about the death of someone loved. Rich in history and rife with symbolism, the ceremonies during funerals help us acknowledge the reality of the death, gives testimony to the life of the deceased, encourages the expression of grief in a way consistent with the culture's values, provides support to mourners, allows for the embracing of faith and beliefs about life and death, and offers continuity and hope for the living.

Since many would avoid mourning the very important reason of a meaningful funeral is forgotten. A grief counselor will tell us that we must participate in the ritual since it would offer healing benefits.

It is very important express our emotions and not to hold back during the mourning process so that it will be easier for the family to accept the loss of a loved one. And one should really invest in funeral rites even if the effects may not be obvious but it is a fact that having a ritual during the death of a person would really help to reconcile their grief and go on to find continued meaning in life and living.
