"Because few things are as immediate, as human and as widespread—at all times and in all cultures—as prayer for one"s own departed dear ones." - Cardinal Ratzinger

This is so darn true.

Prayer for the dead is "almost" like the ten commandments (which is law that is written in our hearts). It's just something that is built in our nature. Every nations does it. Thanks to Protestantism this "natural" devotion is forgotten.

William Walsh

Calvin, the Reformer of Geneva, had a woman whipped because she was discovered praying at the grave of herson and hence was guilty, according to Calvin, of superstition.

I must say, I'd rather be whipped for superstition than burned at the stake for a failure to be superstitious!
