CATHOLIC 101 - Know Your Faith Series - Grace & Guidance for the Journey
TOPIC FOR OCTOBER
What can you expect to learn?
Purgatory is perhaps one of the more misunderstood doctrines by Non-Catholics and Catholics alike. Three common objections are raised against this doctrine:
1. They regard that by believing in Purgatory, Catholics reject the sufficiency of Jesus’ sacrifice.
2. Purgatory appears to be a “second chance” for those who did not choose Jesus while on earth.
3. The word Purgatory is no where to be found in the Bible.
In this session of Catholic 101 we will address each of these objections, presenting biblical evidence as well as examining the Catechism of the Catholic Church. But mostly we will learn what a gift of God’s mercy Purgatory is and how understanding this doctrine can be a great aid in living each day ( in a very intentional way) for God’s glory and out of love for others. It is also a great aid to healing grieving hearts because it gives us something concrete and effective to do with the waves of grief that threaten to overwhelm us.
