Joyful Catholic Leaders Show: Purgatory a.k.a summer school for the soul

Why are we here? Where are we going? How do we get there?

The answers, according to Saint Paul Seminary Spiritual Director Monsignor Steven Rohlfs, actually lie in another question. God asks, “Do you love me more than anyone or anything else?”

“The notion of purgatory has always given me hope, because it means God never gives up on me as long as I don’t give up on God,” Rohlfs says.

Enjoy this lenten reflection from one of the seminary’s wisest priests. Rohlfs serves as a spiritual director and teacher for seminarians and is the former rector at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary in Maryland.

Produced by The Seminaries of Saint Paul, the Joyful Catholic Leaders Show shares stories and insights from those who lead with faith — from the seminary, to the parish, to the classroom, to the office, to the sports field and everywhere in between.
