5. Funeral liturgy

Today there are more forms of funeral ceremonies than the Christian liturgy. This demands a new reflection of the own traditions as well as a conscious perception of actual trends and challenges, their chances and dangers. Here the catholic funeral liturgy in its meaning for the dead as well as for the bereaved is to be analyzed.
