Long Illness Funeral Homily


“Death can come in many forms. It can come as a thief, robbing us of life unexpectedly. Or, Death can come as a friend, as relief after a long illness or extended period of suffering. Pain, suffering and disease are part of the human experience. They are something all people have in common no matter where or when they live. And, while they make life extremely difficult, pain and suffering can also make death easier. Pain and suffering help us to accept the inevitability of death, and finally to accept death itself.”


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.
