I would go on in this whole re-enactment issue, and I still didn't change my mind, but I'll say it:Carpatho Russian said:I quess, I should have phrased my question differently. Is the "Memory Eternal" a command to us, or, is it a prayer to God? If it is a prayer to God, then, we are asking God to keep the departed ever (eternally) in His presence. God doesn't need to re-enact the person's life. The person's life is eternally present to God.
Sorry, but I'm not going to let up until you let go of re-enact. Say "Uncle" and I'll stop!
Only because I don't think we're going anywhere. You do make a good point on your own side that you have little liturgies that don't say these same words Christ said, but in the Coptic Church, no such liturgy exists. So not only are we not going anywhere, but both you and I come from different worlds in this issue.
