In Death, an Opportunity

This month we wish to share with you a powerful story from a Marian Helper from Kansas, Kristen Kurth. As the Holy Souls Sodality continues our year dedicated to St. Joseph, Kristen's testimony proves again the intercessory power of this patron of a happy death.

My father, Glen Kurth, was born in western Kansas in 1925. He was baptized in a Protestant church and raised Christian. After getting married, he and my mother, Marion, tried a number of Protestant churches, but they never stayed with any of them for very long.

Part 2: The Mystery of Purgatory

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is part 2 of Dr. Robert Stackpole's response to a Protestant student in one of his theology classes who recently asked him to defend the Catholic doctrine of purgatory. Read part one.

By Dr. Robert Stackpole, STD (Oct 27, 2009)
