Is there any reference in scripture or church teaching about time in purgatory. I would guess not but just curious.
I lost my brother 4 years ago. My dad has been having lots of dreams about him lately and his parents use to tell him that you have dreams about loved ones when they are getting ready to go from purgatory to Heaven. I’m sure there isn’t any base for this thinking but more of just a comfort thing. My wife and I have both gotten the urge lately to pray for him and after mass on sunday I was praying for my brother and my two year old son came up to me and said what sounded like “Jake”. I said “uncle Jake?” and he said “jake” and pointed to the crucifix . Pretty awesome stuff.
