There is great interest among the faithful in dignified prayer for the dead.
A reader sends this:
Fr. Dwight Longenecker and Fr. Jay Scott Newman sat in choir as Msgr. Steven Brovey, V.F, pastor of Prince of Peace parish, and head of liturgy for the diocese of Charleston, offered the Traditional Latin Mass on Monday, Nov. 2, the Feast of All Souls, at Prince of Peace in Taylors, SC.
The combined choirs of St. Mary’s (Greenville, SC) and Prince of Peace sang a Faure Requiem.
More than 800 attended from around the Upstate of South Carolina.
Brick by brick.
This rather gives the lie to the banal "celebrations of people’s lives" perpetrated in the place of real funerals or requiem Masses.
