Apparently it was in the morning, so it was during the Funeral Mass itself. Here are the relevant parts of an account I just received:
*I said practically everything that I had anticipated saying while I was preparing my outline. One of my relatives that does sound like a genuine Christian said that he really appreciated it and thought that I’d made the gospel very clear. There were a couple of others that seemed to genuinely appreciate the message. Other than that, most said nothing to me, though there was politeness all around.
However, I must say, I had everyone’s attention. You could tell that they were listening carefully. Some of my lost and unchurched relatives were there too like ----------. It was good for them to hear the gospel once again, but I also gave a good warning to those in the audience that were careless about their souls and let them know that they were going to hell if they didn’t repent. I gave a gospel invitation imploring them to pray to Jesus for their salvation.
-------- could see the Priest and his helpers behind me. It was amusing to her at one point because when I said something about the hypocritical Jewish priests in Jesus time one of the old me that was a priest’s helper gave a very annoyed and astonished look that she said almost made her laugh.
The priest seemed to be most unusual as I understand R.C. priests to be. Afterwards when I thanked him for his generous hospitality in allowing me to use his pulpit, he said, “we’ve come a long way, haven’t we.” I could like this guy. ------- said his priest would never allow such a thing.
Thank you for your prayers, and pray now that the gospel would bear fruit.*
I guess the bolded part answers all of my questions…
