Many Catholics have forgotten the teaching on purgatory. Father Hardon, S.J., explains: “Purgatory is the place or condition in which the souls of the just are purified after death and before they enter heaven.” (Modern Catholic Dictionary) It’s consoling to me that I can assist those souls even after death with my prayers and good works.
It’s also important to note that the souls in purgatory can intercede for us. In a world where we are never held responsible and it’s almost unthinkable that God would hold us accountable for our actions the poor souls in purgatory become victims of theological complacency. My sister Penny always reminds me to pray for the most neglected soul in Purgatory. I hope that this neglected soul is interceding for all of us.
