Learn about Purgatory with the Patricians

March 12, 2018 2:22 pm

Join the Patricians Monday, March 12th as we explore the subject of Purgatory. In Roman Catholic theology, Purgatory is an intermediate state after physical death in which some of those ultimately destined for heaven and who die in God’s grace must first undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven. The discussion will explain what Purgatory is; what the Bible says about it; what other Christian churches, as well as other religions of the world, say about it; how long a soul remains in Purgatory; why we should pray for the dead, and what we can do now while we are still alive to reduce our time in Purgatory. The discussion will conclude with prayers/novenas that can help us and the departed. We meet at 7:00 pm in the acolyte room. Water and snacks will be provided.
