Large crowd at Requiem
More than 900 people crowded into the Cathedral of Christ the Light on Nov. 1 for a Requiem Mass, featuring the music of Gabriel Fauré's Requiem, set to the Tridentine Mass, the Mass of its time. Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, right, celebrated the Novus Ordo Mass in Latin. There's a video of the Mass and bishop's commentary at: http://bishopbarbersj.wordpress.com. "The sacred music, in the context of the Church's highest act of worship, was a vehicle for us to experience the awe and love of God. It was made all the more tender with thoughts and prayers offered up for our deceased parents, relatives and friends," the bishop wrote. After the Mass, Catholic Cemeteries hosted a candelight ceremony in the cathedral mausoleum, above, with refreshments afterward in the event center.
