...A friend and former neighbor of mine's Mother just passed away. I attended the Funeral Mass, sent flowers to the visitation the Night before and did not attend the Burial Service after the Funeral. The Mass was beautiful - the Songs, including my favorite "On Eagles Wings" was sung. I didn't have a chance to acknowledge my friend so I plan to call her later BUT Now, I kind of feel guilty about not attending the Burial Service...
Is Custom attending the Mass and Burial or does the Mass celebrate much in itself. I did not know this friend's Mother at all nor have I ever met her. Just Curious whether or not I attended the Full Catholic Passing Ceremony by missing out on the Burial or Not??!!
