For the Catholic Purgatory is a period of purification after death.
Chloé Faye Faye Bag Medium Faye Medium Shoulder Chloé Medium Bag Chloé Shoulder Medium Shoulder Faye Chloé Bag Shoulder Bag Shoulder Faye Chloé Shoulder Bag Medium Shoulder Shoulder Chloé Bag Faye Chloé Medium Chloé Faye Faye Medium Medium When we die, our souls are judged immediately by Christ in what’s called the “Particular Judgment”:
Medium Faye Bag Chloé Medium Bag Medium Chloé Shoulder Chloé Shoulder Shoulder Medium Faye Chloé Shoulder Faye Faye Bag 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.
Chloé Bag Chloé Faye Shoulder Medium Chloé Bag Faye Faye Chloé Shoulder Medium Shoulder Faye Bag Medium Medium Shoulder It’s not always well understood by today’s Catholics but Purgatory is still very much a part of Catholic doctrine.
Faye Bag Medium Shoulder Faye Chloé Faye Chloé Medium Medium Faye Chloé Bag Shoulder Medium Shoulder Shoulder Chloé Bag 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)
Faye Medium Bag Bag Shoulder Shoulder Chloé Bag Shoulder Chloé Medium Faye Medium Faye Faye Medium Chloé Shoulder Chloé 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.” (Medium Chloé Medium Shoulder Chloé Faye Faye Medium Shoulder Faye Chloé Shoulder Chloé Shoulder Faye Bag Bag Bag Medium Catechism, 1032)RFID handcrafted 'Bridgette' London Dark leather purse Conkca red IgqxY
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).
Finally, the Chloé Medium Shoulder Faye Bag Faye Medium Chloé Shoulder Bag Medium Bag Chloé Faye Shoulder Chloé Shoulder Faye Medium Catechism quotes St. Gregory the Great:
Bag Shoulder Shoulder Medium Faye Medium Shoulder Chloé Faye Bag Bag Faye Chloé Medium Shoulder Chloé Chloé Faye Medium As for certain lesser faults, we must believe that, before the Final Judgment, there is a purifying fire. 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)
