Byzantine Liturgy pro defunctis...


Here we see the rite of prayer for the dead after the main Liturgy. Because the rite is for a deceased cleric, you can see the prepared chalice over the folded stole with the funeral card. Also, one sees bread which the faithful have left in remembrance of the dead (of which the clergy take to eat).
