Requiescat in Pace

My dear friend Marcus writes:

Thanks for your prayers during this pregnancy. Unexpectedly, Kelly went into labor yesterday and delivered the 15 week old body of our baby boy. We were, thank God, at Saint Joseph hospital in Tacoma and Kelly lost a lot of blood, but they were able to help her and she is home resting now. I’m very grateful for your friendship and I look forward to deepening it in time to come. God bless you and your family and blessed be the name of the Lord.
In Christ Eternal

Father, may this child find eternal light and peace in the bosom of Christ our Lord and our Mother Mary. And may all who love this baby find grace, healing, peace, strength, and consolation through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

    It is requiescat in pace, not in pacem.

      Really? Wouldn’t it be Accusative after the Preposition “in”?

      • Tito

        In Latin the preposition “in” takes both the accusative and ablative case. In the accusative it means into as in urbem-into the city. In the ablative it means in or on, as in “in urbe”, meaning in the city. The simplest thing is to google the phrase Requiescat in Pace.
