Rediscover the Catholic Truth About Purgatory
What does it mean to “be perfect as your heavenly father is perfect”? How can believers be purified from their sins even after death? Where in the Bible can the teaching on purgatory be found? Why is this doctrine, seemingly forgotten by many, necessary to fully comprehend God’s infinite mercy and justice?
Necessary Purification for Heaven
The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that “all who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation: but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven” (no. 1030). This process of purification is called “purgatory”. And although this theological term is not explicitly found in the Bible, numerous passages affirm the Catholic belief that repentant sinners are purged after death so that they may see God face-to-face.
Now available on three digitally mastered CDs, Fr. Clement Machado’s Purgatory Explained reveals how nearly 2000 years of Church Tradition testifies to this revealed truth. Now you’ll find real answers and helpful insights to common questions about this important Church teaching. And you’ll discover how purgatory is truly a sign of Divine Mercy on those who have sincerely sought to know God, to do His Will, and yet who die in some attachment to sin.
Ample Evidence from the Early Church
Remembering the dead was quite common in the Early Church. Now, Fr. Machado reveals undeniable evidence for this fact found in the New Testament epistles of St. Paul as well as the writings of the Church Fathers. You’ll also discover how ancient liturgies of the Church included powerful prayers for the dead and how even the gravesites of these first believers provide proof of their intercession of the faithful departed.
So why do many modern theologians and most non-Catholics question this fundamental Christian belief? Purgatory Explained provides an answer to this baffling question as it offers a complete catechesis on this important topic. By investigating centuries of the Church’s reflection on this revealed truth, Fr. Machado presents probably the most thorough treatment on purgatory ever recorded. First aired on EWTN, these thirteen episodes explain in detail the Church’s teaching. You’ll also discover how we can help the “poor souls” and obtain both graces and blessing for our families and ourselves.
