Purgatory is real.

Buy this book and

1) Wake up.

2) Knock off centuries of time you would have otherwise been burned and tormented there.

3) It is scriptural

4) A must read for every human being. (most people will sadly go to hell, and of the few who go to heaven, most go to Purgatory first).

5) For all of those who wondered where God's justice, and mercy meet, it is here: PURGATORY!

pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease buy this book, you will have the opportunity to take time off from that dreadful place (state of existence), really!

Since Purgatory is a state of existence, there is no measure of time, and seconds there feels like years, minutes feel like centuries, and some people are there until the end of the world (then Purgatory ceases to exist, and then it is just Heaven) (those in hell stay in hell forever, READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

God bless you, and take time off of your Purgatory time, this is SO SERIOUS.

Amazing book. It gives the biblical basis for purgatory. Oral history is where the bible orignated. Naturally, some oral history was so widely known and accepted and it wasn't written - but it was referred to in the natural course of conversation. This book is for every Catholic. Don't pass this one up.

I like this book and do recommend it as a book to buy when searching for information on Purgatory.
SO many people do not believe in Purgatory today and I can understand that reasoning. But, this book gives good reasons why it does exist.
We all commit sins and ask forgiveness...but we all have to make amends for those sins so we feel worthy of even seeing the face of God.
Purgatory is a temporary place to stop and make up for those sins on our way to Heaven. You might be surprised at how many people are still sitting in purgatory over decades and centuries. All they need are our prayers and sacrifices offered for them. They cannot pray for themselves, but they can pray for us.
And Yes, there really is a hell and a Satan. This is something else people do not care to know. But is surely obvious by all the evil in the world.

Since the title of the book is Biblical Basis for Purgatory, I should have expected several quotes from the bible but, I thought there were far too many. If you don't believe in its existence after 20 or so excerpts from each, the Old and New Testaments and Fathers of the Church, you will never believe it.
I did, however, learn much from the section on Indulgences since the Church has neglected for so long any mention of them and their benefit especially to the Holy Souls suffering in Purgatory. Also, the information on the Apostolic Pardon granted when the Sacrament of the Sick is administered at the time of death was very important especially for those caring for a critically or terminally sick person.
I would recommend the book to Catholics and non-Catholics who are not sure and are open to learning the truth of what the Church teaches and why.

This is one of my favorite study books when defending the doctrine to Protestant's who do not believe that purgatory is real. It is in the Bible,and this book will prove it.
