1. interesting.

 

“It is therefore a good and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, so they may be set loose from their sins”

Praying for the dead..to what end? Are the dead in need of prayers? Why? Its almost as if they were in purgatory which would be the only plausible reason to pray for them...but correct me if I am wrong, the Orthodox do not believe in Purgatory...color me confused.
