This world does not make it easy to be a good man. What we need are good brothers to help us along the way. Men we can learn from and grow with. Men who've struggled and men who've surrendered to the Holy Spirit working in their lives.
Jesus knows what it is like in the desert, but He also knows what it is like to emerge from the desert having remained faithful to God. This Lent, we look to Jesus as our model and pray that we can follow His example, prevailing against the temptations of the devil and growing deeper in our relationship with God.

Hell is not a punishment that God inflicts on bad people. Rather, it is an eternal, voluntary choice that can be made if a sinner wants to reject God’s forgiving, merciful love.
Purgatory is a temporary state of purification where souls (after they have died) have the effects of their sins cleansed before they are able to enter heaven.
Heaven is where souls live in endless union with God, loving and praising Him and praying for souls not yet in heaven.

Consider this analogy. Have you ever tried to put a wrinkled dollar bill into a soda machine? You try your best to straighten it out but the machine simply can’t receive it in its wrinkled, tattered state. But if you put in a crisp, new bill, the machine takes it no problem. Purgatory is where all the “wrinkles” are purged and “ironed out.” Remember, the wrinkled dollar is not worth less than the new one it just needs some help.
Put simply, Purgatory means you’ll get to heaven some day, but that you have a few things God has to “iron out” first.
