I am currently reading the beginning of a catholic bible (the intro about beliefs held) and it says,
"Catholics believe that in death life is changed, not ended, for the faithful who have died. As those who have died remain among the living, so Catholics believe that they continue to pray for us, as we do for them."
Where does this belief of the dead being among the living? Is purgatory on the other side of the veil per say?
I get the part before that says" Catholics refer to those who have died and entered into the heavenly realm as t communion of saints. Catholics believe that those who have died are still part of the church."
