"We must empty Purgatory" - St. Padre Pio.

Purgatory is a very misunderstood doctrine among Catholics. Its not a common devotion among believers and is often dismissed as a medieval devotion that is no longer relevant for the modern church. This, of course, is a false belief.

The holy souls are very real people in Purgatory who need our help to enter Heaven. They are undergoing purification to prepare them for the beatific vision. During this process, they suffer greatly. We can help them with prayers and sacrifices. A soul released from Purgatory will not forget what you have done and will ceaselessly pray for you in Heaven.

This web site has been providing resources on Purgatory since 1998. You can find prayers and information explaining Purgatory and the doctrines associated with it.

Do something everyday for the holy souls!
