From the publisher: "Fr. Schouppe compiles what the saints have said about Purgatory, relying on apparitions, visions, and revelations from the lives of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, St. Gertrude the Great, St. Bridget of Sweden, St. Jean-Baptiste Marie Vianney, St. Lidwina of Schiedam, and others, who recount many occasions when God has allowed souls in Purgatory to appear on earth to plead for prayers, sacrifices, and Masses for their relief. Above all, Fr. Schouppe emphasizes first the wonderful relief which the souls in Purgatory receive from prayers, penance, almsgiving, and especially from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for them."
