Money spent on lavish funerals should be used for the needy.

When i die, I would like a very simple funeral. All the money spent on prayers after my death should be used to feed the deprived children and old age homes. I think I will be more blessed with this than priests mumbling away some prayer. Maybe the little ones full stomachs or the old peoples wishes granted to some extent will soar my soul into the other world. Do you agree with me.

come to think of it - you do not really understand the Faith, do you? I am not talking about costly things but about the disregard of having masses said on your behalf. no I do not agree with you - because temporal things do not benefit the soul as the spiritual things do and there is no greater offering than the Body of Christ at Holy Mass.
