What do Catholics believe about Purgatory?














What do Catholics believe about Purgatory?  There's been a lot of misunderstanding about Purgatory in recent years.

I'm a convert and I didn't learn anything about Purgatory.  My catechism wasn't very structured and it wasn't until much later that I started to learn about it.

Ken Colby (God rest his soul!) taught my daughter to always pray for the dead and she has since she was a little girl.

The Catholic Company published this great article about Purgatory and as we come upon All Souls Day November 2 it reminded me to write and think about Purgatory, too.

So what do Catholics believe about Purgatory?  Mother Angelica explains it perfectly. I know the video is long, but she's so enjoyable to watch and you'll learn so much!
