Let me start that I completely accept and believe the Church’s teaching on Purgatory.
Okay, I have never quite understood this 100%. Why exactly do we pray for the holy souls in Purgatory? It seems to me that if they are in Purgatory, then it’s party time, because they’re going through the final purification before Heaven. They are there, they’re going to heaven. What do our prayers do for them?
I asked this of my best friend and her answer was that God uses our prayers to be the purifier for these souls. Is this correct?
