Abstract: Straipsnyje aptariamos pamaldos už mirusiuosius katalikų bažnyčiose Kaune XX–XXI a. sandūroje, pamaldų istorinė raida, nagrinėjamos mirusiųjų kūno ir kremuotų palaikų laidojimo apeigos. Laidojimo apeigos 2004 m. atnaujintos ir tvarkomos pagal reformuotą Romos apeigyną Ordo Exsequiarum. Yra padaryti tam tikri pakeitimai: daugiau dėmesio skiriama mirusiojo šeimai, maldose nesakoma „meldžiamės už N. vėlę (sielą)“, bet – „už mirusįjį N.“ ir t. t. Straipsnyje analizuojama problema – vengiant dualistinės žmogaus sampratos, silpsta pomirtinio gyvenimo samprata bei rūpestis sielos likimu anapus mirties
This paper explores contemporary funeral rites in the city of K aunas at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries. This issue has not been studied before. It is a relevant issue, because the period has been marked by various changes: the site of funeral rites has moved from the home of the deceased to the funeral homes – public facilities, used by the majority of Kaunas citizens, where wakes take place, to cafes and restaurants, where memorial meals are served, the funeral services as such have become some kind of business. Another change is the use of the revised Funeral Rite. After the study of contemporary services for the deceased and their historical development, it has been determined that at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries a Libera (forgiving of sins) prayer as well as the Liturgy of the Hours for the Deceased, that had been cherished in the Church for long centuries, are no longer the part of the service for the deceased in the city of Kaunas. Libera has been replaced by other responsorial prayers, most probably because its austere text appears to be scary and its deeper meaning remains inaccessible for the contemporary Catholics. A Mass for the deceased in the churches of Kaunas is usually celebrated following the order observed in a certain parish with regard to the celebration of Mass, usually combining several intentions at a time. Bodies of the deceased are not carried to the church, and for this or other reasons only a small part of the relatives and friends of the deceased take part in the celebration of the Mass.[...]
