A eulogy is just a testimonial someone steps up front and gives about the deceased, at a certain point during the funeral. It's done at Catholic funerals all the time.
Not practicing Catholics dont, since they're not allowed according to the Vatican.

Gee, who to believe on something about Catholics? Vatican or the likes of you? Decisions, decisions.....

My step father had all his seven children and some of his step children talk. My mom had a very nice eulogy and so did my inlaws. Roflameo , you are soooo funny.
Then it wasn't a Catholic funeral Knutbar, since the vatican makes clear that there are to be no eulogies at a Catholic funeral.

In addition, there are rules in America set forth by the Policy on Ecclesiastical Funeral Rites

The Archdiocesan Policy on Ecclesiastical Funeral Rites and Instruction on Ecclesiastical Funeral Rites presuppose Church law on Ecclesiastical Funeral Rites as contained in the Code of Canon Law, canons 1176-1185

#18 SPECIFICALLY says:

18. Following the prayer after Communion and before the Final Commendation, only one speaker, a member or a friend of the family, may speak for not more than five minutes in remembrance of the deceased.

I know how to find what the actual AUTHORITY on Catholic funeral's says, the Vatican and in the US, the US Bishops. And THEY say you're wrong too.

Whathefuckever Lynne. Believe what you want, you will anyway, no matter HOW wrong you actually are. Clearly you were up before the crack of dawn so you could get in some uninterrupted bitching time. How pathetic that the first thing you do is come BACK on to bitch and whine about getting warned, then continue to do the same behavior that GOT you warned. Clearly it was eating at you all night.

<quoted text>It's interesting that Knit takes the Vatican's word literally when it suits her but rejects it when it doesn't. I have been to quite a few Catholic funerals and there is usually a very short commeration or a song at the end of the Mass. I gusss, the RCC doesn't call that a eulogy. Far be it from us to second-guess the Pope, but Knit is allowed...
LOL Yup. I should have read ahead. Usually she's demaning people read the catecism, and when they DO and even POST from it, she STILL argues about it.

What MAKES people so deliberately stupid?? I'll never understand...

Uh no. What he did was a HOMILY.

I find it funny that you posted the HOMILY, but left out the title so you can claim its a eulogy.

Isn't that a Jesus No-NO lying about something the Pope did?

And yes, you're right, there HAS to be a mortuary involved whether the body is embalmed or cremated to be shipped. She's wrong about that too.
**sighs** You're SO quick to say stupid shit.

Knutbar said "I corrected you ,because the mortuary would have used the correct term, and you would have been informed of the memorial mass and funeral mass."

My response was "there is no mortuary".

We are having a MEMORIAL SERVICE tomorrow. There IS NO MORTUARY FOR A MEMORIAL SERVICE WHERE THERE IS NO BODY PRESENT. Thus NOBODY here spoke to any mortuary.

I didn't say anything at all about moving any bodies, embalming or anything else of the kind. Knutbar is making that shit up because she's not very bright and didnit bother to actually follow the discussion, and you're following like a good little puppy because you think its giving you the opportunity to bitch about something.

You're BOTH pathetic.

Wrong again Knutbar. Regarding #18 from the same Bishop's website:

http://www.bostoncatholic.org/Offices-And-Ser...

As with the homily, these “words of remembrance” are not to constitute a eulogy as such. Rather, they are to express appreciation for the life of the deceased, or take the form of a prayer or other inspirational text.

http://www.bostoncatholic.org/Offices-And-Ser...

Presiding at the Funeral Liturgy
Funeral Policy

1. Only a bishop, priest or deacon is allowed to preach the homily at the funeral liturgy.

2. A eulogy is not appropriate where a homily is prescribed (OCF #27), although examples from the person's life may be used in the homily. The literary genre of eulogy is not a homiletic form. Rather, the homily is to "illumine the mystery of Christian death in the light of the Risen Christ." (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1687) as proclaimed in the readings.

3. Excellence in preaching is of critical importance to the evangelizing task of the Church, especially at a moment when the faithful who live apart from the regular life of the Church may yearn for a message of faith and Christian hope.

4. In the Archdiocese of Boston, one speaker chosen by the family may offer not more than a five-minute remembrance of the deceased at the Funeral Liturgy before the final commendation. The remarks are to be simple, brief, and prepared. Care must be taken to follow this. Some priests have found it helpful to see the text beforehand. Within the context of a liturgy, the tone should remain one of faith and hope.

5. Other occasions might offer opportunities for individuals to share remembrances of the deceased.

Went to a Catholic funeral at the Cathedral, three people got up to speak about the departed old man.This Cathedral is in the strictest diocese in the nation. My sister in law spent a whopping fifteen minutes eulogizing a friend, the funeral mass had three celebrants. You are full of it Foo.You must have nothing to do. Maybe you should try aruging. I can't wait to ask the new Bishop to see if he aruges, he does run marathons so he might be interested.

LOL, you don't understand anything. Never to be a eulogy DURING the homily portion of the mass.

There are certain prerequisites in a Catholic funeral, and the homily is one. A HOMILY can not be a EULOGY. Certain regular Catholic mass things have to be done BEFORE any of the loved ones can stand up and give a eulogy.

A eulogy is just a testimonial of someone's life and they have been given at EVERY Catholic funeral I've attended, and that's more than a few.
