In the family of the Church, we have many, many members who have preceded us in faith––our spiritual ancestors if you will. And just as we depend on one another’s prayers on earth, so do many of them still rely on our prayers after death. I’ve found a good time to pray for them is right before I eat. We pray the familiar prayer, “May all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.” Whatever your prayer for those who have died may be, do not forget to pray for them, and make sure to ask them to pray for you. This is the family of God. Friends, be confident in Christ’s mercy and love.
