2 Nov – MADISON, WI: Pontifical Requiem Mass

On All Souls, 2 November, His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino, the Extraordinary Ordinary, Bishop of Madison, will pontificate at a Pontifical Requiem Mass at the Throne.  I suspect it may be the only Requiem at the Throne… anywhere.

Those of you near Madison: Bring everyone you know!

The Mass, as last year, is celebrated for all the deceased priests and bishops of the diocese. This puts a spiritual bookend, as it were, on the ongoing project to fund the formation of seminarians for the future.

Please pray for all the priests who have died and who gave you sacraments.

The Mass will be celebrated at 7 PM at the Bishop O’Connor Center.

702 South High Point Road
P.O. Box 44983
Madison, Wisconsin  53719

Main Line: 608-821-3000

The music will be De Victoria’s Requiem for 4 Voices and Gregorian Chant.

From last year.

    It’s not my preference but I have to admit I like that church.

    The first time I experienced a Requiem Mass, my immediate thought and impression was shock that people would have given that up in favor of the sort of funeral Mass that predominates nowadays. The Requiem Mass in the EF is incredibly beautiful, and the prayers powerful, and I think altogether gives the assurance of God and His mercy and solicitude, eternal, for us, far more than the typical OF funeral Mass could ever do. Who wouldn’t want that for themselves and their loved ones when they die? I pray there be many more EF Masses and especially Requiem Masses in the coming times.

    In a curious twist, did you hear that the Episcopal bishop of Chicago will preside at a “sung Requiem Eucharist” this evening during which the “choir will sing the Requiem Mass by Gabriel Fauré”?

    @ benedetta Amen. It’s like throwing out a five course steak dinner in favor of Ramen and box wine.
