Do you ever pray for dead relatives and friends?
Do you offer Masses for them?
Do you sometimes "speak" to them; perhaps in your thoughts?
Do you visit their graves?
Why do you do these things?
Where are your dead relatives and friends anyway?
Heaven? Hell? Purgatory?
If they are in one of these places then God has decided their fate anyway.
So why pray for them?
Your comments and thoughts are very welcome.
