Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”



The following short video of the funeral of the late Grand Prior shows the recessional procession, during the singing of the In Paradisum.  The full videos, posted by Mr Martin Gardner, of A Wandering Oblate blog, may be seen here.

In paradisum deducant te Angeli; 
in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem. 
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

May angels lead you into paradise; 
upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. 
May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, the poor man, may you have eternal rest.
