PURGATORY State or Place?

A friend once said to me “I met my wife on facebook” and in my own meditiation about Purgatory I began to think of the question “where is Purgatory?” and to liken it to my friend who found his wife on facebook I asked ‘where is facebook?’ Is facebook just a platform? Or is facebook located where the servers are located in America and Europe? Or is facebook located at my friends and his wife’s different locations at the time they met each other on facebook? Like when someone says “I met my wife in Port Harcourt, Beigin, London, Paris or Texas.

Where is Purgatory?  For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting. Jn 3:16

Nothing unclean shall enter into the Kingdom of God as it is written in the Holy Scriptures and again it is written that “whosoever says that he is without sin is a liar”.

Indulgence: What The Church Teaches

Indulgence: What The Church Teaches

The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes an indulgence as “a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints”.

The recipient of an indulgence must perform an action to receive it. This is most often the saying (once, or many times) of a specified prayer, but may also include the visiting of a particular place, or the performance of specific good works.
