Pains of Purgatory (do we see our loved ones?)


#1

In Purgatory, do you think we will know and be near any loved ones suffering with us in Purgatory? Will we know if loved ones have made it to Heaven?


#2

I have no idea whether we will be with/near any loved ones in Purgatory. If we are, then we will know them, and I think we may be able to draw some comfort from them, but of course they are not our focus in Purgatory. I don’t think we will have any further knowledge of Heaven while still in Purgatory. Just, you know, better things to worry about at the moment :wink:
