Hi, guys —
I am in my late 60's and became Catholic 30 some years ago. Though I'm half way convinced,
I still have struggles with the teaching on Purgatory. My question is:
- Will this bit of a stumbling block prevent me from entering into the Kingdom of Heaven?
Other than that, I consider myself to be devout to my faith and follow the Word of our Lord everyday.
Thank you for your time.

Doubts about a doctrine are not a damnable offense. Don't worry.
- Can we help clear up your doubts?
- What are your objections to the notion of Purgatory?
Perhaps there are misconceptions that can be cleared up.
Thanks for the question.

I share our analogy or paradigm:
I hope this helps,
