Can a Catholic mass intention be requested by a Catholic family member for a deceased Protestant relative? If yes, will his/her name be spoken during the Universal Prayer along with other Catholic names?
- can the request for the deceased Protestant be made by an ecumenically-minded Protestant who understands the right meaning of the mass for Catholics (i.e. mass as a sacrifice)?
- what if the deceased is a lapsed Catholic?
(the point of mentioning the variations is to help an answer focus on the essence of how mass intention works)
