Requiescat in Pace

I just learned this news, and wanted to pass it along. Archbishop Burke's brother has passed away:

Burke, John Thomas: John Burke passed away unexpectedly Friday, October 19, 2007, at his residence. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Friday, October 26, 2007, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 222 E. Fremont St., with The Most Reverend Raymond Burke, Rev. Kevin Louis and Rev. Robert Karuhn officiating. The visitation will be held Friday from 10 a.m. until the time of service in the Sacred Heart Room. Memorials may directed to Sacred Heart Parish.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul rest in peace. Amen. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

May he rest in peace!

Why the Mass of the Resurrection and not a Requiem Mass? Remember, we are hoping not assuming they get to Heaven, at least that is the Catholic Theology I am familiar with.
