The Holy Souls or the Souls in Purgatory is a subject often regarded today as something old fashioned belonging to the past and often associated with a church language of a bygone era.
It is true that there is a shortage of contemporary written material on the Holy Souls and it is a long time since the popular short books on purgatory and the Holy Souls by Fr. Paul O’ Sullivan were written in a post depression America of the 1930s, an age also when the same subjects were often portrayed by artists in a fiery and vivid way causing perhaps a fear of death and what was to follow.
This book which aims to describe in simple terms what the Catholic Church holds and teaches about the Holy Souls and purgatory and to provide the reader with a reflective view on life, death and what awaits us all in the heavenly realm.
