Praying for the Salvation of the Deceased (According To Padre Pio)
#2
I can’t say that makes any sense to me.  But I’m a layperson, more or less just beginning to acquire true wisdom and knowledge.

To me, your death occurs “in time”, not in eternity.  

Let’s take Voltaire for instance.  He was certainly a major critic of the Church, and I understand it’s the case that he died without the Sacraments, and outside the Church. Can that reality be retroactively changed by our prayers?  If that’s true, it’s certainly news to me.

If that’s true, does it extend to other events in time?  Could we pray for World War 2 to have not happened?  I suspect there’s a serious falsehood and error here.
