Dicionário Cenofóbico: Requiescat in Pacem
he Latin phrase "Requiescat in pace" (singular) or "Requiescant in pace" (plural) is a short epitaph that typically appears on headstones, often abbreviated "RIP" which is then often given in English as Rest in peace. The expression means "may he / she rest in peace" (singular) or "may they rest in peace" (plural) as the Latin verb is used in the optative sense. It is commonly found on the grave of Catholics, as it is derived from the burial service of the Roman Catholic church.
