Question: What does it mean when you pray for the repose of the soul?

The repose of the soul literally means the sleeping of the soul. Whether the soul of the deceased remains trapped in Purgatory or even Hell, may they find peace in their love for God. This is the message entwined with the repose of the soul, and its a common death anniversary prayer.

What is it called when you pray for a dead person?

All Christians believe that only God can determine whether a person belongs in heaven or in hell. Entreaties on behalf of the deceased cant sway God from whats right, but post-mortem praying does have other uses. But, again, even a selfless, saintly pope cant persuade God to let a sinner out of hell.
