THE HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY (2): ON GOD’S LOVE AND THE SOULS’ SUFFERINGS
Imagine a young lady who has an intense crush on someone who, in turn, is eager to meet her and is waiting for her enthusiastically. But the young lady just woke up from her afternoon “beauty sleep”, with rollers still on her hair…and pillow marks on her face… She, herself, will exclaim: “No! Not yet! I have to be presentable before my beloved!” Well, she spends the necessary time, perhaps with angst and panic, to make herself not only presentable but totally riveting to impress her crush.
“If Job’s sons were purified by their father’s sacrifice, why would we doubt that our offerings for the dead bring them some consolation? Let us not hesitate to help those who have died and to offer our prayers for them. (St. John Chrysostom, Homily in 1 Cor 41,5).”
