Benedict XVI explains purgatory

Benedict XVI"Purgatory is an interior fire. The soul is aware of God?s immense love and perfect justice; as a consequence, it suffers for not having responded to that love perfectly, and it is precisely the love of God Himself which purifies the soul from the ravages of sin.”Benedict XVI also sent a message to Haiti for the anniversary of the earthquake that devastated this country one year ago. The Pope said that “the time has come to rebuild, not only material structures but also civil, social and religious coexistence.” He also has hopes “the Haitian people will become the main actors in their own present and future, also with the support of international aid.”JMBCTVHC-BN
