Catholic Harbor of Faith and Morals provides a pertinent piece to the month of November, The Location of Purgatory by Rev. John Nageleisen. Therein the author goes into detail of the location of Purgatory itself, mentioning also the sentences of some souls to make reparation for their sins in specific places on earth, as well as covering the duration of Purgatory.

Therefore it is often necessary to protest against it by the assertion of personal property.”
