Is Purgatory almost like Hell? Or is it a place of peace and even joy? The famous Fr. Faber explains both of these classic Catholic views of Purgatory, basing his discussion on Catholic teaching and the revelations of saintly souls, especially St. Catherine of Genoa, in her Treatise on Purgatory.
About the Author
Frederick William Faber lived from 1814-1863 and grew up in Westmorland, England. Though he held to Calvinism in his youth, Frederick had given it up 1837, when he became a fellow of the National Scholars Foundation. He wrote many hymns, poems and other works, including Faith of Our Fathers, The Pilgrims of the Night, The Eternal Father, All for Jesus, Spiritual Conferences, and The Foot of the Cross.
Frederick Faber also founded the Wilfridian religious community at St. Wilfrid's, with John Henry Newman as the eventual superior when the order merged with the Oratory of St. Philip Neri. He died on September 26, 1863.

They are truly aware of your love for them Review by Pauline Hampshire
This can be a little intimidating for some, but it should make you realize how important it is to pray daily for our deceased family and friends. They are truly aware of your love for them. (Posted on 10/20/2014)

Excellent Review by Jeannie
I would strongly recommend this book. Good catholic foundation in teachings of purgatory. It reminds one that we are not alone in this journey of life, and we do have a responsibility to pray for the dead. Easy to read and easy to pick up where you left off in the chapter. (Posted on 6/17/2014)
Missing Chapters Review by Melissa
The book "Purgatory" is actually an excerpt from Fr. Faber's longer book called "All For Jesus". However, this kindle edition of "Purgatory" by Fr. Faber is actually missing about 60 pages. I own the paperback version of this book and it is approx. 80 pages long. The Kindle edition that I downloaded was only 18 pages. Now, I know that the page numbers do not correspond exactly when comparing Kindle editions to their paperback counterparts. However... since I was able to literally compare the texts to each other... it was obvious that the kindle edition is missing a major portion of the text.I gave this kindle edition of Purgatory 3 stars... because it is not actually the entire book. It probably deserves fewer stars based on this fact, BUT I truly do love this book, and did not want people to get the wrong impression about its actual contents. I would simply recommend that you buy a physical copy instead.My favorite book on Purgatory is actually "Read Me or Rue It" and "How To Avoid Purgatory" by: Fr. Sullivan. A must read. It will move you to develop a deep devotion for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. We must never forget to pray daily for these poor souls.PRAYER FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY"Eternal Father- I offer You the most Precious Blood of Jesus with all the Masses being said this day all over the World for the Souls in Purgatory."
