Catholic Cemetery

BENEDICENDA
CHAPTER III
BLESSING OF A CEMETERY
Section I
1. The Roman Ritual (VII, i, 20) directs each parish to have its cemetery, unless there is one for several parishes together, duly constituted by the Ordinary of the place. If this is not possible the Ordinary is to see that cemeteries controlled by civil authorities are blessed, if the majority who are buried there are Catholics, or that, at least, in such cemeteries there is a special (blessed) place reserved for the burial of Catholics (C. J. C., 1206).
The site selected for the burial of the dead should be high and dry ground. Its size will be determined by the require-ments of the church or locality for which it serves. It is to be inclosed on all sides with walls, or at least with a firm fence, so as to keep out intruders and animals, which are not to be allowed to graze in it. The gates should be locked, except at times when the faithful may have access to it (cf. C. J. C., 1210).
2. There should be no vines or fruit trees in the graveyard. Shade trees may be planted along the roadways, and there may also be flower-beds. Piles of wood or tim-ber, heaps of stone or mortar, and every-thing else which does not assort with the holy and religious decorum of the place should be removed. In a word, the sacred-ness of the material church extends also to the cemetery.
3. Over the principal gateway there should be a cross. The centre of the ceme-tery is to be marked by a large crucifix of stone, metal or wood. A mortuary chapel, where prayers may be recited for the deceased and the absolution of the corpse performed, is a fitting and convenient adornment of a cemetery. In this chapel should be placed a large holy-water stoup and aspersory, to be used for sprinkling the graves. In many cemeteries a large vault is constructed for the reception of corpses which are to be buried later.
4. The most suitable ornament of a grave is the cross, which, accordingly, should be found on every monument in a Catholic cemetery." The epitaphs and symbols en-graved on tombstones, or on tablets in mortuary chapels, should be in conformity with the spirit of the Church (cf. C. J. C., 1211). Hence they should be subjected to the prudent discretion of the parish priest, who has the right and duty to forbid all signs and expressions that savor of irre-ligion and paganism.
a. Suitable symbols: ; AΩ; an anchor; torch; crown; palm; olive-branch; dolphin; lamb; dove; the Good Shepherd; Christ rising from the tomb, etc.
b. Unsuitable symbols: Father Time; the naked Genii; broken shaft or column; urn; overturned extinguished torches; centaurs, etc.
5. The cemetery is blessed by a bishop (normally the Ordinary) according to the form found in the Pontificale Romanum (Pars II), or by a priest delegated by the Ordinary according to the form found in the Rituale Romanum (IX, ix, 22). The blessing is of obligation. A cemetery does not share the blessing of an adjoining church. If the cemetery is enlarged, the added part, whether smaller or larger than the original cemetery (unless it be so small as not to need a special blessing) should be blessed separately.
6. None but Christians are to be buried in the part which is blessed. A special place should be selected, e.g., near the large cross in the middle of the cemetery, or near the church, for the burial of priests and another special place for clerics of lesser rank.
A portion of the cemetery is to be set apart, not blessed, for the burial of un-baptized persons, or of such as are for good reasons deprived of the right of Christian burial (cf. C. J. C., 1212). Care should be taken to keep this portion in as good a condition as the blessed part.
It is to be noted that all trading, market-ing, amusements, and secular business of every kind are forbidden within the pre-cincts of the cemetery. The function of blessing a cemetery should take place, normally, in the morning.

N.B. C. J. C. is an abbreviation for Codex Juris Canonicis, i.e. Code of Canon Law, of 1917.

 

************************

1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
