In this essay, after giving some details about the richness and the defects in Christian funerals in China, I also analyze why do these richness and effects happen in Christian funeral in China: all these happen because of inculturation of Christian funeral in China.
Focusing on the future, I give some suggestions that can cope with the deficiencies. In the last part, I suggest some pastoral aspects for the inculturation of Christian funeral in China. I do believe that good funeral rites are not the final purpose of renewing the liturgy; rather the improvement of our Christian faith within Chinese culture and background is our primary purpose.
