Fr Mildew's thoughts on purgatory

Fr Mildew, my former teacher, has posted some thoughts on purgatory of particular relevance to the priest. These were prompted by a recent trip to the hospital. I found them very salutary.

Today, Father has commented on an "extraordinary letter" in the Tablet. Reading it, I was struck by how vast a gulf there is in understanding between some of the older clergy and the clergy of the John Paul II generation. Priests like Fr Mildew have watched a kaleidescope of theological opinion and liturgical practice spin round since Vatican II and now find themselves shoulder to shoulder with many of the "under 5s". (A term often used for those ordained less than five years.)
