Catholic view of Purgatory ... Is it real?

Mike Kirby's picture

Hebrews 1:3b

How does everybody the interpret this verse?

Hebrews 1:3b
when He had by Himself purged our sins,
sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high..

(verse truncated for brevity)

Was "purgation" a past event or a future event?

Holiness isn't measured by the distance you keep from the world and it's ways ...
it's measured by your nearness to God"

"Divine Grace is not opposed to effort ...
it is opposed to earning "
— Dallas Willard
