Thanks for posting this! I always love reading these things. They help to keep me in line. Here's a link to Gloria Polo. She died and was granted to come back to life. This is her judgement. Boy, did I make a good Confession after reading this one. I still have to read your link.
Thank you for posting this Judy!
I had wanted to read this for some time. It's amazing testimony.
I heard about the Hungry Souls book.
The article on Gloria Polo was great. Read the whole thing. Very moving and helpful.
Manual of Indulgences, should be on every one's shelf.
I agree that the above topic of purgatory should be discussed, but what are we all doing about it? I think the best thing we all can do is go out and buy a manual of indulgences. It is the official book as issued by the vatican and the translation authorized by the US council of catholic bishops containing the prayers and works which carry with them indulgences that can be offered up ourselves or deceased souls for the remittance of temporal punishments due to our sins or those of deceased souls.
Its a book that should be read and thoroughly incorporated into our prayer lives as faithful catholics. No other devotional book can compare because they are not issued by the keeper of the keys.
FYI, the "Manual of Indulgences" is the 4th edition of the "Enchiridion Indulgentium" the "Handbook of Indulgences" (is an outdated 3rd edition of the same book) The "Raccolata" is also an outdated edition of the Enchridion book from before the second vatican council. Many of the prayers are still partially indulgenced but should be read in light of the current grants.
