The Pains of Purgatory

St. Thomas describing the pains of purgatory says:

With regard to the least pain of Purgatory it surpasses the greatest pain of this life. For the more a thing is desired the more painful is its absence. And since after this life the holy souls desire the Sovereign Good, . . . it follows that they grieve exceedingly for their delay

(Source: Supp. Appendix 1, 2, 1).
Please don't forget to pray for them. They rely on our prayers completely and are unable to remind us!
