1P5 Podcast – Episode 23: A Requiem Mass Denied


The power of a Requiem Mass as a sendoff for the souls of those who have departed this life is inestimable. One priest in the diocese of Trier, Germany had come to understand this, and thus placed a request for a Requiem Funeral Mass in his will – a request that was guaranteed in writing by a fellow priest.

But when he died, the Mass was forbidden by Bishop Stephen Ackerman. Ackerman is one of the very same bishops who likes to speak about “mercy” – but only when it involves those living in grave sexual sin, not those who desire something as noble as an authentic Catholic funeral.

Enough is enough.
