“Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust..“, words everybody has heard or will hear at least once in their lives probably during burial services for a loved one, a family member, a friend, or someone they knew.
These are words a Christian priest or a minister would say at the grave site of the dearly departed reminding all present that our lives on this planet numbered, very short, and we will all end up dying and get buried (or cremated then buried) ending up just some dirt returning back to mother earth.
My picture depicts a remembrance prayer service by a group of Ukrainian Catholic priests for their own brother priests buried at Montreal’s Cote-des-Neiges Cemetery following another service for Ukrainian community members buried at this cemetery.
This has been a tradition followed by the Montreal community since the 1950’s to visit the graves of their deceased and attend the special service during the month of June each year to remember and pray for the souls of those now sleeping the eternal sleep here.
