Okay so my wife got this crave of visiting a cemetary today. Unfortunately, when we got there, it was closed.
Since we decided to stay and look anyway, we were actually in for quite an experience; it was dark outside but we could still see the names of the people and when they had died while standing on the outside of the cemetery. At some point we heard the sound of a coke can or something being thrown in the street, and since we saw noone around, we high tailed it out of there because we were afraid someone (or some thing) may be trying to hurt us.
My question is what’s the Churchs’ teaching on visiting a grave? I know that you can pray for the reposed souls of the dead if they are in Purgatory and if they are in Heaven then they will pray for you. Any guidance on this would be appreciated. Thnx.
