Publisher's Summary

After a week of hearing ghostly noises, a man is visited in his home by the spirit of his mother, dead for three decades. She reproaches him for his dissolute life and begs him to have Masses said in her name. Then she lays her hand on his sleeve, leaving an indelible burn mark, and departs...

A Lutheran minister, no believer in purgatory, is the puzzled recipient of repeated visitations from "demons" who come to him seeking prayer, consolation, and refuge in his little German church. But pity for the poor spirits overcomes the man's skepticism, and he marvels at what kind of departed souls could belong to Christ and yet suffer still....

Hungry Souls recounts these stories and many other trustworthy, church-verified accounts of earthly visitations from the dead in purgatory. Included in this edition is a brief audio tour of the Museum of Purgatory in Rome, which contains relics of encounters with the Holy Souls: numerous evidences of handprints burned into clothing, books and artifacts - burn marks that cannot be explained by natural means or duplicated by artificial ones.

very enlightening

Buy this book. Never assume your departed loved ones are in heaven. Pray for them. I wish the church would emphasize this more. God is loving but just. Some very chilling examples of poor souls who have appealed for prayers and offerings.

Great book

We have to start praying to our beloved friends and family members who passed away, if they don't exit with us it doesn't mean that they don't need us.

Sanctification for the redeemed

The idea that forgiveness comes from the acceptance of Jesus providing justification and the journey just beginning. It is through time with the Son that one gets to know the father , as he received greater mercey, knowledge of the Holy one, he is more likely to do his will. As this process continues he is emptied of himself allowing Christ to live freely within. When life on earth ends, it is just the beginning of the eternal life of either damnation, pergatory, or the presence of God. Pergatory being a continuation of the santification process.
