OCF 47: Rite of Committal

OCF sections 204 through 233 cover two forms of the final act of reverence toward the body of the deceased (but not those two forms):

47. The section entitled “Rite of Committal” includes two forms of the rite of committal, the concluding rite of the funeral: “Rite of Committal” and “Rite of Committal with Final Commendation.” The first form is used when the final commendation is celebrated as part of the conclusion of the funeral liturgy. The second form is used when the final commendation does not take place during the funeral liturgy or when no funeral liturgy precedes the committal.

We’ll get to the particulars of this in a few months.
