Prayers for a deceased priest


#1

Please pray for a priest who has died in Germany over the weekend. He was a local parish priest here in SE Michigan. He was accused of some horrible things, but no proof was ever brought against him. I truly loved this priest, I pray that his soul rests in peace. :frowning:

I have not found any scripture on praying for the dead. If there is can you please point it out to me.

Start with 2 Maccabees 12: 43-46. I know there are others, but I would suggest posting your question in the Apologetics forum.

Prayers going up for Jessica, as well

As well as the one who said

“here I am Lord”

Crying my eyes out here

Selfishly, I cry,. in sadness I cry out to God

Yet, I have so much peace in knowing God’s providence

is real

Jessica, if you can read this know that I pray for you too

Jessica, Sister in Christ

Never despair of God’s Mercy

Never think God can not do all things

I know this may not help your specific question, I only ask you pray on this.

If you wish, please contact me if you are able through the mods, if they will permit it.

I will stick with you Jessica.

I will not abandon you, but I may not tell you what you want to hear either.

I do Love you, and you know this already, :wink:

Dont leave upset and frustrated, be at peace with Christ, He is the only Way.
