The way I see Purgatory (I have a very basic understanding) is that it’s a place people go when they die in God’s friendship but still with venial sins. I see Purgatory as a place for cleansing the person of sin before they enter Heaven. I also see that people pray for people to get out of Purgatory faster.
My question is, am I misunderstanding Puragtory/people praying for the Holy Souls? Because if I’m right, then it seems a little odd to want people to get out faster. If a person gets out faster, they might get out before their cleansing is done. At least, that’s the way I’m thinking right now.
Can someone please explain? I’m sure I’m probably misunderstanding something, but I’m not sure what. I haven’t done a whole lot of research on Purgatory yet.
