Saint John Chrysostom tells us “Let us concern ourselves for the good of our dead. Let us provide them with the proper assistance- offerings and acts of charity- because this brings them great relief, profit, and benefit. Because such things were not ordained by chance but were handed down to the Church by the Lord’s most wise Disciples and Apostles. The priest is to commemorate the faithful departed over the spotless Mysteries… Those who forget and neglect to perform the dues of the dead bear responsibility and sin”.
