About This Episode
Purgatory is one of the most misunderstood concepts in Catholicism. But it’s not just non-Catholics who struggle to wrap their minds around it. Catholics themselves often don’t know why the Church proclaims this teaching. In this episode of The Road to Emmaus, Scott Hahn will show that Purgatory is not only biblical, it’s for our good.
Curtis Martin, President of FOCUS and popular apologist, explores “The Burning Truth about Purgatory” in this article from the St. Paul Center blog.
