Fr. Hopka said last night that over the next few months there will be some Requiem sung Masses at St. Mark. These will be Novus Ordo Latin Masses but sung, and departing from the normal prayers of the liturgical year for that day and instead will be a Requiem Mass. The purpose of the Mass will be to offer prayers and supplications for our departed family and friends.
I heartily endorse this idea! I pray we get a big crowd! Assisting at a Requiem Mass is a great spiritual work of mercy, it will redound to your benefit, spiritually, and could be of immense aid to a soul suffering in Purgatory! It’s a great deal all around!
I’ve never been to a Novus Ordo Latin Requiem Mass. The Requiem Mass in the TLM is beautiful beyond description, it is a transport to the 7th Heaven.
Let’s get our Requiem on!
Oh…….another thing I pray for. Black vestments! I like these alot, for they say that life is short, death awaits us all, and eternity is forever:
