Dear Crystal Waters.
I was wondering if purgatory is all we have been told in grade school, like the fires are like the fires of hell, and that some souls will be in purgatory till the end of time. At so many funerals when their is a homily given, many of them speak of the deceased as already being in heaven. We don't know where the soul has gone. It is most important that we pray for the deceased and have masses said for them.
