In my parish we mention deceased people by name in the Sunday Prayers of the Faithful, if the family requests it. We frequently mention the sick, though not always. Sometimes people prefer to remain anonymous. And once, someone was listed on the prayer chain, requested Sunday prayers, but “got better” and worshiped in church that weekend.
Sit in the purple chair and render a liturgist’s judgment, if you will. Would you continue such practices? Would you add names other than anointing of the sick? Should the Sunday assembly pray by name for freshly baptized infants, just-married couples, and newly ordained clerics? Why or why not?
