  • Complaints And Desires Of The Christian Nihilist
    969 words

Even if we'd heard it, we never stopped to think about how we could get "born again". I got a job in a music store. Christine was a sales clerk there. She was one of the sweetest, most honest people I had come across up to that time. And she was open abou...

  • C.S. Lewis
    304 words

  • Christian Burial
    362 words
    There is the vigil or Christian wake. This is the time when the family can gather before the open casket to remember and pray for their loved one. The family can also say the rosary or other devotions. In many countries it is the custom to spend the entire night. This is when it is most appropriate to have eulogies and stories.
