This is one strictly for the mods and libs, how crass! Clapping at a funeral - but it appears to be the thing to do these days. What are they after? An encore, a curtain call? To me, this speaks volumes about the modern Church, the Church that I cannot associate myself with.
My only consolation is that Our Lord would not be clapping.....He would be waiting to receive the soul of that person. I believe that He would wish that we pray for the salvation of that soul, not that we "honour them" by giving them a round of applause. Cheap and nasty. Ugh!
