For what do the dead say?

So it turns out that our relatives die suddenly. This fact makes us think about death, about the meaning of life, about how to properly conduct the deceased into another world.Funeral serviceit is usually carried out in the temple, in the temple at the hospital, in the morgue they usually do not Until the fortieth day the deceased is called the newly-reposed.

Funeral service deceased

It is very important at this moment to commemorate the deceased, since it is difficult for his soul to move from one life to another, especially as trials await her, which are commonly called ordeals. Commemorate the first, third, ninth and fortieth days. In this case, the day of death is considered a point of reference.

 

In addition to these important days, the deceased is remembered on the anniversary of his death, on his birthday, on the day of the angel. On such dates, a requiem is ordered, a dead hand is served for the deceased, and relatives gather at a common meal to remember a loved one.

 

Aboutburial service of the deceasedyou must agree with the priest in advance and have a death certificate with you. In the candle shop of the temple, get a shroud, a halo, which is placed on the forehead of the deceased, a small cross and a sheet with a prayer.

 

You should be aware that unbaptized people and those who deliberately deprived themselves of life - suicides - are deprived of the Christian burial service.

 

One must distinguish between death of one's own will and accidental death. So, suicide does not include the poisoning of stale food, death at work, drowning in water. But the robbers who committed robbery or murder, victims of injuries, are also considered to be suicidal by the Church.

 

If you are certain that your relative committed suicide in an insane state and should be buried, contact the Diocesan Office and ask for written permission from the ruling bishop.

 

If the deceased was baptized, but for some reason he changed his views during his life - he became a pagan, he didn’t treat the Church badly, there was no reason to spend the funeral service of the deceased, respecting his views.

 

Absent funeral is performed in the event that a person became a victim of a terrorist act, his body could not be found, he disappeared in the war or his death was reported after a few years.

At the end of the article I would like to say a few words about the superstitions associated with the funeral and funeral. For example, many still believethat it is necessary to veil the mirrors in the house where the dead person is, close the vents so that the soul does not fly away, it is impossible to look out the window at the funeral procession, otherwise you will die, to put vodka and bread for the deceased ...

 

If you consider yourself an Orthodox Christian, do not trust such practices. If you do not understand something in the question of the funeral service of the deceased, contact the priest.
