Purgatory: punishment or purification? What do we understand about purgatory and how can we ensure we "make it" to heaven?
Purgatory is the least understood of the three possible “destinations” when we die and is mysterious to many us. Purgatory is God's merciful plan for allowing us to rediscover the joy and freedom of being human, the joy for which we were created but which sin has smothered and distorted. Join Fr. Paul Pearson and the young adults of the western region of the Archdiocese of Toronto on Wednesday, May 4 at St. Benedict Parish for a night about reflecting on what happens after death.
Fr. Paul Pearson is the Rector and Dean of Saint Philip’s Seminary in Toronto. He has written the books, “Spiritual Direction from Dante: Avoiding the Inferno”, “Spiritual Direction from Dante: Ascending Mount Purgatory” and “Spiritual Direction from Dante: Yearning for Paradise”.
Signed copies of the books will be available at the event for purchase.
Social at 6:40 p.m. Talk starts at 7 p.m.
