Editor’s Note: As an American who founded an international NGO to help persecuted Christians, I ask all my readers to ask God to have mercy on the soul of Pete Reed, who died saying a fellow volunteer in the war zone of Bakhmut, Ukraine. He and his organization dedicated themselves to saving lives in war zones. Truly heroic.

Am I right and doesnt death by this kind of martyrdom erace all temporal punishment for sin and the soul goes straight to heaven ?
We cannot say it was martyrdom, because he was not killed out of hatred for the faith. Nor can we say it was a heroic act of Christian charity, since we do not yet know if he was a Christian. But we can ask mercy for his soul from God, because the little we do know merits that.
