(Latin: in memory of)

Inscription found in the catacombs. The term memoria came to mean memorial, monument, altar, or church, erected in remembrance of the departed; also called confession. Pope Saint Anacletus built a memoria over the tomb of the Apostle Peter. It is not exclusively of Catholic use, but to the Catholic it means pious remembrance of the dead and prayers for their repose and happiness.
