Catholic view of Purgatory ... Is it real?

If there is a purgatory then when God said He is love then God is a liar!

Why is that? Scripture often tells us that God chastises us when we need correction.

Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Does this mean He is not love? Does this mean He is a liar?

I don't think you understand purgatory.
