Catholic view of Purgatory ... Is it real?

re: Scriptural basis

These scriptural quotes speak of the redemption and of entering into salvation. Yet like all such quotes there are other scriptural texts that describe salvation as a process and also about being purified after forgiveness for the sins we have committed post Baptism.
Harmonising of all the available scriptural quotes seems essential.
Like heresy as a general scenario, it often arises not only from a straight out error or a belief that is the direct opposite to a truth of faith once delivered by the saints, but often arises from any person honing in on one truth to the detriment fo other truths as part of the overall equation.
