The men and women who followed the teachings of Jesus
...successfully ... were honored by the Church by being canonized
and named Saints. These we honor on November 1.
Many others, however, lived simple and quiet lives, sometimes
falling, but always getting up. They recognized the
love of God for them, and came back for forgiveness, reconciliation
and strength: "These are the ones who have
survived the time of great distress; they have washed their
robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb."
These men, women and children are recognized on November
2, when we commemorate all the faithful departed.

So much for purgatory....
Why are so many priests fearful of even the mention of it, and the souls there?
