What is the priest answer about ophelia having a better funeral service?
He didn't agree with her having a Christian service, because of the fact that she killed herself, but no one really knows for sure if she did.
A priest does not receive payment for administering a service orsacrament; salvation is not only for the rich. It is recommended,however, that a donation called a "stipend" be… given if it iswithin the means of the those who have requested the service orsacrament. While a priest is given an allowance to meet his needs,stipends allow the priest to have a supplement to their set income. You can usually call the local priory and ask the secretary whatthe recommended stipend is for a specific service or sacrament inyour region. If you cannot afford a stipend, this should not affectthe priest's willingness to provide the service or sacramentrequested.
Traditionally, a priest wore black vestments for a funeral, reminding all that death was a reality for us all and that we must pray for the deceased. In the modern Church, …the priest wears white. This change was made in the liturgical reforms of the late 1960s. It was changed in order to emphasize belief in the resurrection and that the deceased will surely be now rejoicing in heaven, thus let there be no sadness. Conservative congregations and priests continue to use black vestments, claiming that the modern changes disregard the reality that not all souls go to heaven, that death is a occasion for sorrow and reflection on our own lives in order to spur us to right living and that prayers must be offered since few souls go straight to heaven, but rather end up in Purgatory where they need our prayers for their deliverance. . Catholic Answer The rubrics for a funeral in 2012 specify that white, violet, or black may be worn for a funeral Mass. I suppose that the individual planning the funeral may request it, but normally the priest will wear what he usually does, and in most modern parishes that is white. There are few parishes anymore that even have black vestments.
Speak with him/her right from your heart. Death is something which joins the entire human family. No one escapes this one, fortunately - it gives us all a kind of common denom…inator we can relate to.. So speak from your heart and when you see him/her, give a big hug and let him/her unload. You don't have to say a lot. You don't have to struggle for the right words. Just the fact that you have stepped forward to speak with him/her in the first place will mean the world to him/her.. Your friend is very likely waiting to hear from you, so just be good, old, natural you. Be the person your friend is so fond of. Open your arms to him/her and be sure you give him/her a hug. Right now a million things are flooding through their mind, and your presence and support will help him/her to make a Spiritual bridge from the pain he/she is in right this minute to a semblance of sanity, balance and calm.. The sooner you can reach out to this person, the better. Later, you will feel so good inside, no matter how it goes, that you made the effort to appear, relate, hug, cry maybe, and just help share her sorrow at this special time in his/her life.

A funeral service is a service held after someone has died in honor of them.
yes he is having a funeral
He wears white to symbolise the victory over death. That by Jesus dying on the cross for us and then rising on the third day, he conquered death for all those who die in Him.… The casket is also drapped in a white cloth to symbolise the same thing.
Indeed! Ophelia is being given a shortened funeral service out of suspicion that she killed herself. Someone who kills herself died in a state of sin, since suicide is a sin a…nd there was no opportunity to be forgiven, and so she really shouldn't even be buried on holy ground. Someone's pulled some strings behind the scenes, so the priest is compromising by giving her a lackluster funeral. Laertes is upset at this disrespect toward his sister, just as he was upset that his father wasn't mourned with more pomp.

I am not sure if Priests ( Catholic) or Ministers ( Protestant) were involved, not knowing Beethoven"s religious background. The musician was known to have composed Nine symph…onies- Nine clerics may have been a recognition of this fact, something like flowers spelling out say, l776 for patriotic angles.
Apart from the mortuary context- it is essentially a Mass like any other and has the normal Introit, entry hymn, prayers, epistle, Gospel, sermon and Communion and the various… rites that bridge these. Hymns are played- appropriately serious ones- and in some cases bells are sounded in time with the hymns, not actually a Carillon.
The money given as a donation to a priest for performing any function such as a funeral is known as a stipend or stole fee.
The canister hanging from a chain is referred to as either a thurible or censer. Inside is a mixture of charcoal and Resins, such as Frankincense, Amber, and Myrrh. There can …be elements of Patchouli, Lavender, Cassia and other items as well. Most Anglo/Catholic thurifers use a quality mix consisting of only Frankincense and Myrrh, plus small circular charcoal briquettes, which contain small amounts of gun powder, which continually sparks, thus heating the charcoal. Incense is used as a sign of reverence, offering, and sanctification. It symbolises our respect for the deceased, who has begun their journey to The Lord, and whose body will rise again. This follows in accordance with numerous Biblical passages, possibly the most notable one being Revelation 8:2-4: Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne; And the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God. At the funeral you may also see the celebrant sprinkle water upon the coffin from a stick-like object with a ball at the end. This is called an aspergillum and is used to sprinkle Holy Water for the purpose of symbolic purification. This is derived from Leviticus.
The 'smoke' that comes from the priest's 'thurible' or 'censer' is a mixture of self-igniting charcoal and incense - mostly frankincense and myrrh. Incense is symbolic as a si…gn of reverence and sanctification, and as the smoke rises, it represents the elevation of the spirit towards God. As with many manifest acts of the Anglo/Catholic faith, there are often many roots that lie in practicalities of life during the time of Christ. Often, bodies had been carried long distances before they were prepared for burial. The odour could at times be overwhelming. Added to this was the odour of the people who gathered for the service. The heavy oil of the incense used, easily permeated the chapels, thus hiding some of the combined odours. Many pagan rites of that period, incense was used for that very reason, thus it would be understandable that such a practicality would extend to a Christo/Judaic service.
Yes, as death and burial have deep theological significance for Christians, there are three ritual moments in the liturgy: the vigil, the funeral liturgy proper, and the rite …of committal - all of these require (or should have) a Priest. Although the funeral liturgy is not a Sacrament, it does present the aspect of a kind of sacramental participation in the paschal mystery.

In The Bible
Funerals are official ceremonies of the Church. Readings from the bible are made at all Church ceremonies. The purpose of these readings can be twofold: 1. to give solace to… the bereaved 2. to give instruction to the faithful - i.e. how to live a good life and merit eternal reward.
