Good Friday

Today, I saw a remark on FB from a non-Catholic claiming that, because we believe in Purgatory, we don’t believe in the Resurrection! I responded, “Please make some effort to understand Catholic doctrine before commenting. Unlike every other religion on the planet, the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings are clearly spelled out. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is available at low cost in print and for free on-line in both searchable and downloadable formats.

“1026 By his death and Resurrection, Jesus Christ has ‘opened’ heaven to us. The life of the blessed consists in the full and perfect possession of the fruits of the redemption accomplished by Christ.”

“1030 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.”

“1031 The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned.”
