Here’s a new one on me. I got this e-mail today, from a campus minister at a large university:
We have a big Nursing program here and I was recently asked by one of the professors to do a blessing over the cadaver they will be using this semester. I was wondering: is there any formal ‘Cadaver Blessing’ prayer used by priests, deacons, or ministers, perhaps from their book of prayers or somewhere else? Just trying to see what’s out there. Any assistance you could give I would appreciate. Thanks.
But I have to wonder: does anyone out there know of any particular prayers/blessings that might be appropriate?
