On another site, the following question was asked:
Sue wrote: “Are you also aware that if a woman has a miscarriage no funeral is warranted (in the Catholic Church)? So when is it considered a death of a child if you are not to mourn it? Miscarriages usually occur in the first trimester.”
I’d like to get a quick response in. It’s really the statement concerning the funeral being warranted and then the question of death and mourning. Any suggestions?
