Children’s Funeral Homily


When someone loses a child, their world changes forever. Often, words seem so insufficient to address this difficult loss. Our children’s funeral eulogy will help you meet them where they are in their grief while offering words of hope and healing. A sample excerpt from this eulogy is below.

“Through faith we know that Jesus is at work among us even though we can’t see it or measure it. Your child now sees and knows the mystery we are unable to find words for. And, we too someday will also know. These burdens we carry will someday fall from our shoulders, and we will know for certain the everlasting life that Jesus died to win for us. Holding onto that reality, no matter how far off it may seem, gives us the strength to carry on, if just for one more day.”

The actual length of this homily is 641 Words. Use it as a complete, compelling reflection or as a unique starting point in crafting your personal message.


It is our prayer that these sermons may assist you in touching more of your congregation as you proclaim the Word of God. Our homilies come in Microsoft Word format so that you can easily edit and personalize the sermon according to your preferences and preaching style.
