Purgatory


#1

Is purgatory real? Some have tried to strip out the Bible book that mentioned purgatory, but a direct reference by Jesus no one touched. Jesus said some sins would not be remitted here on earth or in the next life. Clearly he was referring to purgatory. I found this by reading about St. Bernard. So almost 1000 years ago he agreed that Jesus was talking about purgatory.

I believe you might want to read Curtis Martin’s piece in “Catholic for a Reason” gives a good base for purgatory with Biblical references and quote from Saint’s Augustine, Caesarius of Arles and Gregory the Great.

Purgatory :That tract will give you a good explanation of it.

This link may also help somewhat.

A friend of mine once described Purgatory as God’s “Detailing shop”. :smiley:
