Thank you for sharing that...

I am curious... just where does one come up with a papal tiarra for such an event?

Good heavens !

Is that a tiara on top of the catafalque ? I wonder how the FSSP got it.

I like the "memento mori". Some people these days seem to think it's macabre. But what's wrong with being reminded about mortality at a requiem ?

Yes, our two friends made the tiara, MB and CW.

isn't this the requiem Mass from the year he died? Everyone looks so much... younger and the church less well kept.

What Order do the two priests/friars in the red Franciscan type habit with red cross belong to? Never saw that community before. Is it a new Order?

The men in brown are archconfraternity members
