I just found out the my cousin's husband was a non-believer, and so was my cousin. That was news to me, I always thought they were Catholic, maybe non strictly practicing, but at least CINO.
I was going to request he be enrolled in Perpetual Masses with the Passionists, but as a non-believer, should I still? If I do, should I not let his widow know, or should I tell her/ send her the card.
What does a practicing Catholic do for a dead non-believer family member? The very people who might need prayers, might not want them.
Scripture to keep in mind
Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.  My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
