Is there any form of a requiem service that is ever said for non-Orthodox? The young man's 40th day is coming up next Tuesday and I'm trying to figure out how best to handle it.
There is the Canon to St. Varus, which can be prayed for any non-Orthodox who have died or anyone who has committed suicide or died without repentance.http://www.stvladimiraami.org/sheetmusic/canonstvarus.pdf
Troparion of St Varus the Martyr tone 5
Thou didst follow in the steps of the martyrs/ and contend for the glory of Christ./ Thou wast tied to a beam and restored by the Tree of Life,/ and thine intercessions gladden our souls.
Kontakion of St Varus tone 4
Thou hast followed Christ and drunk His chalice;/ thou didst receive the crown of martyrdom, O holy Varus./ Thou art rejoicing with the Angels: pray unceasingly for our souls.
Here is a prayer to the Holy Martyr Varus for the repose of the non-Orthodox:
"O Holy, wondrous Martyr Varus, who, burning with zeal for the Heavenly King, didst confess Him before thy torturers and didst greatly suffer for Him!
Now the Church doth venerate thee, as one glorified with the glory of heaven
by Christ the Lord, Who granted thee the abundant grace to approach Him boldly. And now, standing before Him together with the Angels, rejoicing on high, beholding the Most Holy Trinity clearly, and enjoying the Uncreated
Light, remember the suffering of our relatives who have died outside the Faith, and accept our pleas, and as thou didst intercede for the unbelieving ancestors of Cleopatra and didst free them from eternal suffering, remember
those who have died unbaptized and have been buried in an ungodly manner, and pray earnestly that they may be delivered from eternal darkness, that we may all, with one mouth and one heart, praise the Most Merciful Creator unto
the ages of ages.
