Limbo and Pugatory
I do not know nor have I read of any revelations to catholics visionaries on Limbo. I mean any visits to Abraham’s bosom. Mary has taken more than a few into Hell and Purgatory. Purgatory is part of the temporal church and will not last into eternity. Limbo was emptied of those who believed in God by Christ by His descent into Hades to lead all those souls into Heaven. That is He opened the gates of heaven and that was before the establishment of the Christian Church which renamed itself Catholic in 112 AD. You all know from a previous post that if we apply the Church's teachings on the responsibilty and the seriousness of our sins I believe that Limbo still exists for the Hebrews.
Purgatory will be emptied when God, by His upping the fiery purifying rite, when He sees fit. That is unless we as Catholics empty it first by prayer. This charitable act we can do as long as the earth and temporal time exists. To those who believe, try this prayer
“Almighty and Eternal God, beloved Father of our lives I offer you all the drops of Precious Blood , Your Son Jesus Christ shed from the Garden to His Grave, each drop in atonement for a poor soul in Purgatory. I offer them to You in His Name”.
Offer it daily and let us see if we can save all those poor forgotten souls as an act of charity. They are forgotten, many of them, as so many not believing in Purgatory do not pray for them.
Also I cannot understand the argument over where aborted foeti go. When we are conceived sometime within a moment too fast for us to comprehend, original sin, our inheritance from our father Adam covers our soul with a shadow separating us from God's family. This sin is neither mortal or venial but never the less needs to be removed. God is not vengeful to those who have neither the will or full consideration for the sin commited. These unborn children are therefore in Purgatory and will once purified or prayed for or a requiem mass is offered soon after the time of their death will join the Chrch triumphant in Heaven. The doltish ruminations of theological goats abiding will make no difference to God's will.
Some who read this will jump to eagerly dismiss this rambling by quoting Auguatine let me quote Fr William Most of the subject
St. Thomas knew that at least part of this view of Augustine
was an error. For in q. 5. a. 3, ad 4: "The infants [who die
without baptism] are separated from God perpetually, in regard to
the loss of glory, which they do not know, but not in regard to
participation in natural goods, which they do know....That which
they have through nature, they possess without pain." In contrast,
Augustine, as his theory really required, held for the
positive damnation of infants: 93. Even he admitted
much discomfort with his conclusion, in Epistle 166.6.126: "But when
we come to the punishment of little ones, believe me, I am caught
in great difficulty, nor can I find at all what I should answer."
Centuries later Pope Pius IX was to confirm the position of Thomas
in regard to the lack of pain. In (DS
2866): "God...in His supreme goodness and clemency, by no means
allows anyone to be punished with eternal punishment who does not
have the guilt of voluntary fault."
