The Most Misunderstood Doctrine?

Purgatory is surrounded by myths and misunderstandings. Many Catholics no longer believe in it.

Despite what some people say, however, the Church has never changed her teaching on purgatory.

Many of our loved ones are there now—and many of us will experience it one day.

Purgatory is for real. Souls have visited from the other side to prove it to us.

If you have questions about purgatory, now is the time to answer them.

Changed my life forever

I had no idea we need to pray for those souls in purgatory, for the loved ones passed, for those who have no one praying for them, for ourselves right now… I am grateful for the insights and testimonies, the information is overwhelming but hopeful. Thank You Lord for leading me to this series.

Purgatory - Cleansing Fire

Excellent! This series is a great way to learn all about Purgatory. Father Kauth does a great job in the lessons of fully explaining and going beyond what you will read about in each lesson. I have read several books on Purgatory, so my beginning knowledge level was already proficient. This series will take you beyond that, so it is excellent for the novice and veteran learner. Highly recommended!

Purgatory - Cleansing Fire

I was blind to 99% of the content of this series. Very eye opening, powerful and needed presentation of Purgatory. This series should be promoted teaching to all adult Catholics. Suffering souls are awaiting our prayerful petitions on their behalf. Thanks to all the participants in this presentation. My love and gratitude to all, Jane Honea🙏❣️
