Thank you very much, lizol.

Very beautiful.

The mass is both sad and beautiful. The fleeting glimpses of his daughter Marta are heartbreaking; she seems devastated. And one can only imagine the feelings of an identical twin brother.

I am glad that Koehler was able to helicopter in and Medvedev to fly in. The representatives of the two countries which have most plagued Poland needed to be there.

If I may answer, I believe you are referring to part of the Catholic Mass.

I can so relate to them being Polish Catholic myself.

Would anyone who understands Polish tell us please, what we are seeing — and where this is taking place?

I am a second-generation Polish American.

I do not speak any Polish at all.

What you were seeing is the standard Roman Catholic Mass in Polish.

They are now heading to the burial site.

Those were old Roman Catholic songs, most of them in Latin.

Just reported on Fox News that Russian Authorities now say; there was only ONE attempted landing. (Am confused; would that the be the 'last' one(?) Some clarity on this, surely to follow.)

Meantime; given Obama could not make flight; you would think that this ONE Sunday; Obama could show up for Service somewhere; where Poland's tragedy is being acknowledged in prayer.

At the moment they’re heading to the Wawel Royal Castle - were the late President and the First Lady will find their eternal rest - in the Royal crypts.

Oh, I’m sorry. I see there are two caskets now. So this is still the funeral for the Kaczynskis. My apologies.

Not exactly.

This is the funeral of Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria.

Ryszard Kaczorowski was the last President of Poland in exile (until 1990). He also died in the crash, but he’ll be buried tommorow in Warsaw.

The service, that is being conducted at the moment is the part of the funeral, that usualy takes place at the grave-site.

The reason is, that only the relatives and the Archbishop of Krakow Cardinal Dziwisz will go to the proper crypt.

I’m familiar with the Latin and the Polish Masses. Our family lives across from St. Stanislaus Kostka RC Church in Sayreville, NJ. 5 generations have attended the church and school. I was Baptized there.

The red one with the White Eagle on it is covering the President’s coffin - as it is the official banner of the President of Poland

I have no idea what they were chanting.

It would be interesting to know like you said.

It is sad and almost odd to see the President’s twin standing there in all his likeness. I can’t think of a funeral I’ve ever seen with a twin.

God bless this whole family and your entire nation. I feel like these people are part American and all of us in America, part Polish. Whether we have Polish in our blood, or not, all Americans are part Polish for our loving and friendly alliance.

You are a strong, strong people. And MUCH better off with our usurper not there. God is good.
