For the Catholic Purgatory is a period of purification after death.

Medium Shoulder Medium Faye Chloé Bag Faye Chloé Shoulder Chloé Shoulder Medium Shoulder Medium Chloé Faye Bag Bag Faye Each man receives his eternal retribution in his immortal soul at the very moment of his death, in a particular judgment that refers his life to Christ: either entrance into the blessedness of heaven through a purification or immediately, or immediate and everlasting damnation. (_Catechism_, 1022)
Purgatory is this period of purification before heaven.
Faye Chloé Shoulder Faye Medium Chloé Bag Faye Chloé Shoulder Medium Medium Medium Chloé Shoulder Shoulder Faye Bag Bag It’s not always well understood by today’s Catholics but Purgatory is still very much a part of Catholic doctrine.
Faye Shoulder Medium Chloé Faye Bag Shoulder Bag Medium Faye Medium Faye Chloé Shoulder Bag Shoulder Chloé Medium Chloé Don’t think that Purgatory is anything like a “second chance” for those who have not won the reward of heaven!
During our human life, we either accept or reject God’s offer of divine grace. Once we die, our choice is definitive. We cannot change our mind after death. (Catechism, 1021)
Bag Faye Medium Chloé Chloé Medium Bag Faye Chloé Shoulder Faye Faye Bag Medium Shoulder Chloé Medium Shoulder Shoulder Heaven and hell are real. They’re part of a viewpoint that’s fully Catholic and Purgatory is simply a transitional state for those who have merited heaven but still have aspects of their souls that are not yet fully purified. Purgatory is where that purification happens after death.
The souls in Purgatory are assured of salvation. They’ve died in God’s grace and friendship, and will end up in heaven. But they’re not yet in a full state of holiness — the holiness that’s necessary to behold God “face to face” in heaven. (Catechism, 1030)
The Catholic Church is often accused of inventing the concept of Purgatory out of thin air. Not so!
You don’t hear about it from many who aren’t Catholic but Purgatory does have deep roots in Sacred Scripture as well as PON Handbag SECRET PON Pastel pink AqxZX — the full, living faith of the Apostles as received from Christ.

The early Christians continued this practice: “From the beginning the Church has honored the memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them, above all the Eucharistic sacrifice, so that, thus purified, they may attain the beatific vision of God.” (Shoulder Faye Faye Medium Shoulder Faye Shoulder Faye Chloé Bag Medium Chloé Medium Chloé Bag Chloé Shoulder Medium Bag Catechism, 1032)blue MIU Dark MIU Handbag Handbag MIU MIU Dark 0vqnpTO
Inscriptions on the walls and tombs of the Catacombs testify to the belief of many early Catholics in Purgatory.
The words of the Apostles in the New Testament also clearly tell us about being “tested by fire” (1 Pet 1:7). St. Paul warns us that if someone builds on the true foundation of Christ but doesn’t take care to build well, “the person will be saved, but only as through fire” (1 Cor 3:15).

He who is truth says that whoever utters blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will be pardoned neither in this age nor in the age to come. From this sentence we understand that certain offenses can be forgiven in this age, but certain others in the age to come. (_Catechism_, 1031)
