Hi all,

wow, what an interesting discussion, I am learning so much. Although a catholic my entire life I am very silent when it comes to the depth of our own doctrines; sad to admit.

I had a related question, a friend of mine told me, but couldn’t provide scriptural text at the moment, but the Bible states somewhere in on of the book of the Prophets or Psalm that when a person dies, nothing nor no one on earth can do anything for that person, that includes praying for them, for once they are in the ground than that’s it; they will basically rest there until the day of Judgment.

Is this true?
