We enter the second phase of our journey through the afterlife as we begin Dante’s Purgatorio. This book is the heart of The Divine Comedy in fact and in spirit as it offers real and profound suggestions for reordering our spiritual lives.
To begin we will be considering Cantos I-VII of The Purgatorio, much of which is dedicated to considering those souls who just make it to salvation, whom Dante calls “the Late-Repentant.” If you want a little help following the text, there is a very nice animated summary here.
As always, do check out — and share with family and friends! — our podcasts of past Mystagogy sessions. If you would like to make a contribution to help us meet the costs of the podcasting, you can use the parish E-Giving link here.
