Q: I’m verifying with you that what I am wanting to do is correct. I’m wanting to offer up a Mass for the Dead for Pope Benedict XVI this Friday as also the First Friday Mass. Looking at the Ordo, I have a green light to do that, correct?
In addition to the Prayers for a Deceased Pope from the Roman Missal from the Masses for the Dead, I would use a Preface for the Dead, correct?
Lastly, on the Mass Readings, those can come from either a Funeral Mass selection or the Mass Readings for that particular day in the Church calendar, correct?
Thank you for your help and God bless you.
A: Yes to all the above. Thanks for doing this for your people.
