"hoc facite in meam commemorationem." Lucas 22:19
William F. Buckley once commented: "The next liturgical ceremony conducted primarily for my benefit, since I have no plans to be beatified or remarried, will be my own funeral; and it is a source of great consolation to me that, at my funeral, I shall be quite dead, and will not need to listen to the accepted replacement for the noble old Latin liturgy."If Mr. Buckley were alive today I'm sure it would be of great consolation that a Requiem Mass in the "noble old Latin liturgy" can be offered by any priest of the Roman Rite as decreed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. Ad multos annos - Father!
I think I'm knowin how I want my obsequies to look now...
