On Time in Purgatory

purgatory_008

Very excited you are doing this. As far as questions, I would like to dig deep of the time frames of purgatory. I see there are indulgences taking 100’s of years off time in purgatory, but Cardinal Ratzinger wrote:

"The transforming 'moment' of this encounter cannot be quantified by the measurements of earthly time. It is, indeed, not eternal but a transition, and yet trying to qualify it as of “short” or “long” duration on the basis of temporal measurements derived from physics would be naive and unproductive."



Is it therefore possible purgatory, in light of 1st Corinthians 3, is a moment of purgation rather than a tremendous amount of time?

"…it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work which any man has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire."

I thought that title would get your attention. No one likes to think of himself/herself as a pervert. When we hear the word “pervert,” images of some strange man with various sexual deviancies lurking in the shadows comes to our minds.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary As Our Refuge

Immaculate-Heart-of-Mary

Since our present times are entrusted to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, I thought it would be good to deepen our understanding of Our Blessed Mother’s most loving and merciful heart. Since Our Lord told Sr. Lucia of Fatima that He desired to establish devotion in the world to Mary’s Immaculate Heart, let’s humanly try our best to enlighten our minds more regarding Her heart.
