Liturgical classification of dead in the intercessiones of Eucharistic Prayers of the Roman Missal for Polish’s Dioceses

Liturgy of the Eucharist is a sacrifice for the living and the dead members of the Church who have been called to eternal happiness. Apart from prayer forms, dedicated only for the funeral’s celebrations, in the content of the Eucharistic Prayer was built intercessory prayer for the dead, which ipso facto clearly highlights the spiritual solidarity of Mother Church to those, who after the death of "achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven" (CCC 1030). The content of these Eucharistic Prayers intercessiones Polish edition of the Missale Romanum emphasize a kind of classification of deceased persons, for which the Church prays in the most height of the Eucharistic celebration.

At each Holy Mass Church intercedes primarily for his faithful sons and daughters who through baptism have become "household of God" (Eph 2, 19). In addition, the Church also prays for those of dead, whose faith was known only to God, therefore in the intercessory prayer of the Church are included all those, whom God in his providence gives an eternal happiness. However, spiritual care of the Church, does not include the damned.

The Mass's intercessiones for the dead are heavily permeated by eschatological perspective. Through the believer’s death, he gives himself totally and definitively to God, and spiritual support of the Church, given after his death, is a help for him to complete his homeland in heaven.
