Sparkle,

Here's the original article that accompanied the photo, which was taken in the same cathedral where I was confirmed. thanks and kudos to the Detroit News for sharing it with us!

For the salvation of souls and the softening of hardened hearts, we pray:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The celebration of the funeral and everything else around it are really not to be about a human, but rather about Resurrection.

JPII was a holy man, and we should celebrate the ways he was holy, with an interest in using his life and death as an example, thanking God for His perfect design.

Essentially though, we should do for him what we would do for all Christians: celebrate his rising, our potential rising, and the rising of Christ. This is a big deal and it should be, just as it should be for all Christians, the passing of JPII is a celebration of our own joy or Easter, and should in a way, be celebrated as serioiusly and as joyously.

Yeah this had to be one of the stupidest threads ever - Bedgrudging someone's funeral.

I didn't make anyone else watch it. Click "Off" on your remote.

It opened with a scriptural reference from acts, so if that's what you need here's another one:
(We dumb Catholics who attend mass during the week heard this at yesterday's first reading, following Stephen's stoning on Tuesday)
Acts 8 1-2
That day bitter persecution started against the church in Jerusalem and everyone except the aplostles fled to the country districts of Judaea and Samaria.
There were some devout people, however, who buried Stephen and made great morning for him".

Okay now puhleeeeeeeese let's bury the thread.

Rom.12:10
love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor.

Rom.13:7
Pay all of them their dues, taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.

1 Tomothy 5:17-18
Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching; for the scripture says, "You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain," and, "The laborer deserves his wages."
