Q. 1. What does "Memento of the living" mean?
A. 1. The "Memento of the living" is the remembrance at Mass of those for whom priest and people wish to pray specially. In the Roman Canon, the Memento occurs before the Consecration, and the persons are mentioned silently by name, followed by a general remembrance of the living. In other canons, there is only a general intercession for the Church, but no silent Memento.
