St. Augustines vision on Purgatory really scares me. Saying that the pains are like or equal to Hell and worse than the most excruciating pain possible on earth. It seems some of the visions of saints and mystics confirm this(the miracles of burnt handmarks, etc).
Lotsa people tell me not to worry about. But the St. Augustines view seems to stick in my head… Is there anyway to deal with this without becoming to scrupulous??
