A eulogy is a tribute that recalls the life and character of the deceased.  Since the intention of the Funeral Mass is to pray for the deceased and to commend his or her soul to the Mercy of God, we encourage eulogies to take place when family and friends are gathered at the Funeral Home or during the luncheon, rather than during the Funeral Mass itself. These are more appropriate settings for eulogies, and allow for others to share sentiments and stories as well.
