St. John the Baptist Cemetery

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Mt. 5:4)

When we are baptized, we are brought to a sacred place, a Catholic church, and there baptized into the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, thus receiving the promise of eternal life. When loved ones die, we take them to another sacred place, a Catholic cemetery, while they await the resurrection of the dead and the fulfillment of the promise of eternal life. With eyes of faith, death as seen as a natural passageway to a changed life with God. Burial in a Catholic cemetery is a statement of continued belief in the everlasting life, even in the face of death.
