What is Purgatory


Often imagined as a place
Is actually a condition
Someone who dies in Eternal God’s grace
(and before at peace in Eternal God and men)
But still needs purification 
Before he can see Eternal God face to face

St. Peter had betrayed Father Christ
The Lord turned around and looked at him
St. Peter went out and wept bitterly
A feeling like in purgatory
