The commemoration of the heretics

 "You ask me, how to memorialize your parents who died heretics. In your individual prayer commemorates assigning them the endless mercy of God. In the church but not commemorates. The Church prays for the salvation of the children and the return of deluded. He is the living link of all believers (living and dead), forming one body with Christ the head. Unbelievers (live and dead) did not participate in this body. Those dying heretics like me who commit suicide. The Church does not pray for them, because they die with mortal sin. It is bitter for you these truths. But you can hope to unlimited mercy of God and the individual you claim your prayers.
