Catholic Church lays ground rules for funerals

Apparently the Catholic Church in Ireland has a document prohibiting secular poems, songs, tributes, etc. during the actual funeral Mass.

On the surface, it seems a bit draconian, but I guess you could say that they could do those at the wake, or whatever.


"(J)azz musician Paddy Cole revealed...that he was not allowed to play at his mother's funeral Mass. "
Folks, a tiny bit of rule-bending in this matter won't hurt anyone nearly as much as being sticklers undoubtedly hurt him. Just saying.
