At the Princess Diana funeral service (Church of England) of course, there was the implication that she is in heaven* and at the same time the clergy man there commended her soul to the Mercy of God. How’s that for a bet each way! I have seen some of this bet each way thinking at some Catholic funerals also.
If Princess Diana is in heaven as was implied, why did she need the Mercy of God? Blessed Mother Theresa and her nuns prayed for the soul of Princess Diana, who was Mother Theresa’s friend. They were more with it!
*The implication was in the Song that Elton John sang at the funeral service.
