Burying the Dead

Jesus is laid in the tomb, the 14th Station of the Cross, in the Church of St. Martin de Porres on the island of St. Martin.   Years ago at a funeral I was celebrating I saw a parishioner in the congregation who was not related to the deceased.  I asked her what brought her to the funeral.  She replied, "My mother told me that burying the dead was one of the corporal works of mercy,"
