Pray for the dead, it's an Act of Mercy

Ps 23:

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of theLord forever.

Corporal work of Mercy:bury the dead Spiritual work of Mercy: pray for the living and the dead

“Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.”

I hope that someday, I'll arrive in Heaven, and alongside St. Peter, I will be greeted by souls who were freed from Purgatory, with the help of my prayers.
