they may be loosed from sins."
II. Machabees, 46.
Long before the Christian era
and very, very long before the
Baptist church was invented the
Jews prayed for the dead. Tho
Catholic church admonishes all of
her children to pray for the dead,
from the Pope down to children who
have reached the age of reason.
