Things to Include in the Homily at My Funeral

Father Trigilio reports on the funeral Mass of Father Neuhaus, and has this glorious excerpt from Father de Souza's homily:

Father de Souza's sermon was one of the finest I have ever heard and it was the most apropos. He began where most priests and deacons woefully and adversely omit: "we pray for the merciful judgment of Almighty on God on the immortal soul of Father Neuhaus for any sins he committed in life; for speedy purification of his soul; and for divine reward for all his goodness and acts of charity while he sojourned here on earth."
