The Catholic funeral liturgy celebrates the return of God's children to the Kingdom of Heaven. Now, there's a deluxe new scripture binding that can be a meaningful addition to the Rite of Christian Burial — a long term source of guidance for loved ones: "The Promise of Christ."
"The Promise of Christ" features the NABRE New Testament text. A special 56-page center section contains all the Readings, Acclamations and Psalms of the Catholic Funeral Liturgy. This Liturgy of the Word selection guide simplifies the funeral planning process for both family and celebrant.
When included in the "Placing of Christian Symbols" rite, "The Promise of Christ" provides a visual reminder of the importance of the role of scripture in the Catholic funeral rites. And its high quality construction makes it a sacramental gift families can truly treasure forever.
