The Church of Sweden is offering a 360-degree online film alternative to people unable to make it to a graveyard in person to remember a loved one this All Saints’ Day.

This weekend is the time Swedes traditionally light a candle on a grave of a loved one.

But those unable to make it will be able to still take a look around a graveyard filled with candles online on their computers or phones.

Charlotte Frycklund is a priest who works on the internet, primarily on social media. She told Radio Sweden in modern life people do not always have time to visit a graveyard in person.

"We found in general that people say they would like to think about their loved ones but something always happens and time gets in the way,” she said.

“Sometimes you just have to make the little times in life, small pieces of time, five minutes or ten minutes, or one minute count and do something with them.”
