Funeral Mass rant!
#2
I'm sorry.

I absolutely HATE funeral Masses. I've never been to a Requiem Mass, but these Novus Ordo funerals make me want to puke.  The last one I went to was a "wake"-style Mass for a deceased Brother of the Sacred Heart who taught Latin and Physics in high school.  It was in our town's cathedral, and it was a giant hootenanny.  I don't mean to judge others there but I can't see how anybody else there was actively trying to pray for his soul - unless they pray by talking and laughing loudly.

Then the deacon, during his turn to speak parts of the Eucharistic Prayer (at least it wasn't a children's E. Prayer), basically canonized the poor Brother by treating him like a Saint interceding for us!
