Homélie à Cluny - 13 septembre 1998
Célébration du millénaire de l’institution du Jour des morts, 2 novembre, par saint Odilon, abbé de Cluny
« Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine »
..L’offrande du Sacrifice de la Messe, qui répand sur l’humanité la grâce de la Rédemption opérée sur la Croix. Et les fidèles tiennent à juste titre, à ce que l’Eucharistie accompagne la cérémonie des funérailles. N’était-ce pas déjà le vœu de sainte Monique, demandant seulement qu’on se souvienne d’elle, après sa mort, à l’autel du Seigneur ?« L’Esprit et l’Époux disent : Viens - Amen, Viens Seigneur Jésus »
