QUERY: When may the special formulary for the dead be used in Eucharistic Prayers II and III?

REPLY: The source of this query is the phrasing of the rubric for Eucharistic Prayer III: "When this prayer is used in «Masses for the dead. . .»" (See «Preces eucharisticae et praefationes», Vatican Polyglot Press, 1967, p. 35). This rubric has been clarified in the new Order of Mass (GIRM no. 322b): "When Mass is celebrated «for any dead person. . .»" Thus the special embolism for the deceased may be used in any Mass that is celebrated for a dead person or in which a dead person receives special remembrance. The purpose of the law is to facilitate the carrying out of the GIRM no. 316 on restraint in using the Masses for the dead. Not 5 (1969) 325, no. 4.
