Quotes: “Father Groeschel’s concise presentation on Purgatory is a must read for everyone. Father justified Purgatory’s existence with quotes from Matthew’s gospel. I particularly enjoyed the visual of St Catherine of Genoa portraying Purgatory as “a soul feeling itself melting in the fire of God’s love.” She said, “the joy increases day by day as God’s love fills the soul as the impediments to that love are worn away.” Not the scary place most imagine.”
