Gospel Reading from Luke 12:32-48

Other Bible quotes that tell us how to get to heaven: Ex 20:1-17, Mt 5:17-19, Phil 2:12, Mt 25:31-46, Rev 21:27, Rom 1:5,28,32, Jam 2:14-26 to list but only a couple.

Biblical quotes supporting purgatory; Mt 18 ;34&35 The sevant who does not forgive will be punished, but only till he forgives from, his heart. Hell is eternal punishment. So there must be a place where the punishment is not eternal. Other quotes; Lk 12:59, 2Mac 12:39-46, Mt 12:32 to list just a couple.

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
