  1. This is awesome reading – thanks yet again Tom! I recall a saint once said that after death when the soul is cast toward heaven it senses that the divine essence is so pure that the soul, finding in itself the slightest imperfection, would rather cast itself into 1000 hells than to appear stained in the presence of God. Knowing that purgatory is available to cleanse the stain, one throws oneself gladly into purgatory and finds there the greatest mercy of all: the removal of stains so one may stand pure before Almighty God! Yet again, God’s eternal designs are full of mercy, joy and hope. Thank God for purgatory!
