Question / Issue:
"Did the funeral rite
change after Vatican II?"
Answer / Resources:
[click link(s) below, as applicable]
Yes, the funeral rite
changed after Vatican II similar to the
changes made to Mass. One of the most noticeable differences is the near
elimination (or even complete elimination) of the word "soul" from the new
funeral rite. The new rite has also received criticism for the priests' wearing
of white vestments (instead of black), for the virtual 'canonization' of the
deceased which has been known to occur, as well as for the lack of solemnity
which is often displayed. [Note: The traditional funeral rite is still
available and lawful for use (try
here for information). To have this rite used instead of the new rite,
ask your pastor.]
