Time off in Purgatory? Sounds like a great deal - it doesn't cost The Church anything and doesn't have any relevant affect anyway. Gee whiz, The Church just got rid of limbo for souls of kids and with the stroke of a pen now low down dancers everywhere may be in violation of church policy!


Besides, who goes to Purgatory in the summer time?
I can see needing some time off from majestic scenery, exciting slopes and snow bunnies...

Next, they'll have ACH/debit card payment plans to pray for the souls of dead relatives.

Wow, so that famed Book of Life with the names of Believers in it will have a box checked next to those who followed Twitter? Wow, more work for St. Peter at the Golden Gates. Wonder if he got a pay raise?


Really, it sounds totally bizarre!!!

LOL

Holy hashtag! Pope joins the tweeting masses!


The pontiff will tweet in eight languages starting Dec. 12 using his personal handle @Pontifex, responding live to questions about faith during his weekly general audience, the Vatican said Monday.


I can't wait to see what Jimmy Falon does with this! Holy Hashtag confessions?

Only three hail Mary’s instead of five for beating the bishop?

Better throw in an "Our Father" for good measure!

Even If it was only three that would mean I better start saying Hail Marys for the next hour, and those were based on just what I did today

Why follow the pope when you can follow God @theTweetOfGod.

I'll negotiate my own time off purgatory with the diety himself....

Maybe we could start a penny auction site selling blessings. $10 per bid pack sounds pretty fair.

I don't know if it is a genuine effort to keep up with the times for the falling number of younger Catholics or if it's a ratings booster tactic or what. Most devout Catholics already confess, pray and attend mass so what's with the lure of a shorter stay in Purgatory? Has the "G" man above agreed to this deal?



Hey, cursing cat, OP, how come you started this anti-Catholic thread? How original. Maybe, you're a fallen
away Catholics?

Indulgences are good, God wants us to think of Him.

Did you bother reading the original post at all? Your pope is a sham! And why do you assume that every dissenting voice is a disgruntled former catholic? Maybe we just have brains!

Matthew 5:26
Amen I say to thee, thou shalt not go out from thence till thou repay the last farthing.

1 Corinthians 3:15
If any man' s work burn, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire.


Our Lord Himself is telling you and confirms the book of Revelation, nothing unholy enters Heaven. There is a place of purgation. If we don't atone for our sins here by our loving acts, prayers and sufferings, we do in Purgatory. Everyone in Purgatory has been judged for Heaven.

What is Paul talking about in 1 Corinthians 3:15? Purgatory. No one in Hell is saved. And there
is no suffering in Heaven.

Indulgences are a gift and they help you come closer to God. The more you pray, the more
you want to pray.
