Dignity & beauty….
Many thanks, Father!
Click the USA button .. the UK doesn't carry the Requiem yet. By the way, is there a Catholic rite or Mass for Non-Christian burials in the US (or do you mean a funeral Requiem)?
Some screenshots selected from the video:http://www.knoxlatinmass.net/MotherAngelicaFuneral.htm
NO - We can bury non-Christians. The "Order of Christian Funerals" does include prayers for the non-Baptized and a "Deceased non-Christian married to a Catholic."A mass could be offered for him/her - including a funeral mass, I suppose. We would omit the sprinkling since it recalls Baptism. I have buried two Jews - relatives of an in-law - but we did a simple graveside service and chose Old Testament readings.
EWTN has posted it on You Tube as well.
Bee here (OpenID not working)Thank you for posting this Father. I had not seen it live, but really wanted to see and hear how the Mass. How nice it was to recognize familiar faces from my parish (Fr. Hayes directed the choir, and the voices that did the chants were two priests and three Brothers from the parish.) I also saw another Brother having a role in the processions. My goodness, how beautiful it was. My mind was elevated to God at so many points, and tears came to my eyes. I felt as if I were at Mass while I watched, and am so grateful to have been able to participate in this way. I smile when I remember St. Clare was able to "attend" Christmas Midnight Mass by a miracle of remote viewing - she sick in her bed, yet our Lord gave her the vision to see it all as it happened. Hence, as you all know, she is the saint of television. And so now how appropriate for dear Mother Angelica, a daughter of Clare, to have been a television pioneer, and that technology now allows us to view things remotely, and even after they have occurred, so that we might participate even when we physically cannot.Thanks for posting the link Father.
Thank you for this informative response, I thought it might be so (but one cannot always tell today - even with blessings and sacramentals). This and another recently televised US Catholic requiem was truly moving, and indeed heartening. God bless you and your mission.
Thanks, Nancy. The Youtube version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hr4K6yzR14of the video is much easier to navigate and select specific parts you want to view. An interesting and beautiful Mass booklet is also posted:http://ewtn.com/images/ma-mourning/downloads/MotherAngelicaMass_04_01_16.pdfWhere (for instance) you can see which parts of the Mass were in Latin and which were vernacular.
I just noticed that one of the concelebrants was wearing the Pallium.
