Overview


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 others trustworthy, Church-verified accounts of earthly visitations from the dead in Purgatory. Accompanying these accounts are images from the "Museum of Purgatory" in Rome, which contains relics of encounters with the Holy Souls, including numerous evidences of hand prints burned into clothing and books; burn marks that cannot be explained by natural means or duplicated by artificial ones. Riveting!

    Hungry Souls.....our life after death?

    Many of us beleive that we are on a direct route to heaven following death and hell is reserved for "really bad" people. HOwever Catholic dogma and parts of the Bible say there is an intermediary place called Purgatory. This is not a spiritual "spa" before you meet God but a place of suffering and purgation. The concept is difficult to understand but we cannot ignore it simply because it is unpleasant. The book offers several "proofs" here on earth that these souls sometimes communicate with the living. I recommend people of faith to read this book as it may help those who are suffering to embrace it and shorten the time of purgation. Consider this book an inviation from God who loves us so much he wants us to be in eternity with HIm.

    Well written

    This book a greatly needed aource on a topic that is so poorly understood. Its "thelogy" is accurate and reflects orthodoxy. It is well documented and is beneficial to both the faithful and the skeptic
