“ there is an ecclesiatical discipline , as the faithful know , when the names of the martyrs are read aloud in that place at the altar of God , where prayer is not offered for them . Prayer , however , is offered for other dead who are remembered. For it is wrong to pray for a martyr , to whose prayers we ought ourselves to be commended .”
Ad 400 Augustine of hippo , sermon 159, no.1, in FEF 3:29, no.1513. Pg 339 Four Witnesses by rod bennett
Hi , as i read this in Four Witnesses , i could not understand the last 2 sentences. “For it is wrong …to be commended.” Could someone guide me to what it means?
