St. Justin Martyr

The Other Shore

Once again, upon request of the AFC ( – this was sometime in the early 1990s I believe – I offered the following reflections on what awaits us after death. The word “purgatory” confuses non-Catholics (and some Catholics as well!), so I have entitled the reflections with an expression well-known not only in Biblical language, but also in other religious traditions. I have an extensive text on the question (in “Writings”: Paisagens e períodos póstumos), but not yet translated into English.

My interviewer is the AFC founder, Jerry Coniker (+2018), with contributions by their theologian-in-residence at the time, Dr. Burns Sealey (+2007).
