29 December 2015. DO IT… We’re Christians… That’s What We Do

01 russian orthodox funeral

A friend of mine expressed reservations about praying for a certain individual who’s passed on… I replied…

Yes… but we ARE Christians. DUTY IS DUTY. Praying for all the dead is our duty. Full stop. You don’t have to like them or like what they did. Here’s what you should do… ask a monastic that you trust the same question that you asked me. Betcha that you get the same answer from them. DO IT. Feelings are from the devil… duties are from God… keep it focused…

Pray for the dead, whether you liked them or not… we’re Christians… that’s what we do…
