What do we do when we visit a cemetery?

Cemeteries can be a place of healing where we remember and pray for our deceased loved ones.

What should we say or do when we visit a grave or niche? Many people find it peaceful to walk through cemetery grounds or simply sit by the tombstone. Whether we say a decade of the rosary, offer specific prayers for the faithful departed, or just have a spontaneous conversation with the Lord from the heart, cemeteries give us a place to connect through prayer and reflection.

“The cemetery isn’t just for those who have passed. It’s very much alive and for those who are living.”
