Comfort Her

Funeral Mass for Saundra Warner
The Church encourages us to pray always for the deceased that she be released from Purgatory if she is still detained there.  We know that praying for the dead is not in vogue but its practice is pre-Christian because all peoples, sharing the primitive revelation from Adam and Eve, offered sacrifices for their departed loved ones so they could be freed from a place of purifying after death.  It was recognized that after death we were rewarded or punished for our deeds in life.  Christ approved of the Jews praying for the dead during His life in the Holy Land.  We can help pay the debt for one of our own and thereby comfort her.
