Dona eis requiem

April 6, 2008

I have been asked to say a Requiem Funeral Mass on Tuesday morning. The grandson of the departed will be serving, and our choirmaster will be chanting at the church and cemetery.

In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

May angels lead you into Paradise; may the martrys receive you at your coming and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May a choir of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, who once was poor, may you have eternal rest.
