What Happens After We Die?

Aleteia - published on 10/17/14

Documentary film explores the controversy and consolation of Purgatory

In this trailer viewers are introduced to the groundbreaking documentary “Purgatory: The Forgotten Church,” which investigates these compelling life-after death questions:

What happens after we die?

What do near-death experiences tell us about the afterlife?

Is Purgatory real?

Do we need to suffer to go to Heaven?

Can praying for the dead help?

For centuries Catholic tradition and doctrine has been that Purgatory exists so that souls may go through a final purification after death before they can attain eternal salvation. In this DVD, for the first time, scientists, scholars, historians and church leaders come together to investigate the controversies and consolations of Purgatory.
