Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE MEANING OF R.I.P.


Q. 1. What does RIP means in the Catholic faith?

A. 1. Most persons would answer this question with the words "Rest In Peace." R.I.P. is short for "Requiescat in Pace", which is Latin for "May he (or she) rest in peace". To Catholics, this is a familiar prayer, an invocation for God's mercy on the soul of a deceased person. This abbreviation/symbol was found in the earliest catacombs.
