  • Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory
  • Stories of supernatural visits from souls in purgatory
  • A fascinating & sobering account of the afterlife
  • Church-verified testimonies & relics
  • Includes photos from Rome's "Museum of Purgatory"

After a week of hearing ghostly noises, a man is visited in his home by the spirit of his mother, dead for three decades. She reproaches him for his dissolute life and begs him to have Masses said in her name. Then she lays her hand on his sleeve, leaving an indelible burn mark, and departs . . .

A Lutheran minister, no believer in Purgatory, is the puzzled recipient of repeated visitations from "demons" who come to him seeking prayer, consolation, and refuge in his little German church. But pity for the poor spirits overcomes the man's skepticism, and he marvels at what kind of departed souls could belong to Christ and yet suffer still . . .

Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory recounts these stories and many other trustworthy, Church-verified accounts of earthly visitations from the dead in Purgatory. Accompanying these accounts are images from the "Museum of Purgatory" in Rome, which contains relics of encounters with the Holy Souls, including numerous evidences of hand prints burned into clothing and books; burn marks that cannot be explained by natural means or duplicated by artificial ones. More than just a collection of "Catholic ghost stories,"  Hungry Souls also discerns from these accounts important truths about the afterlife, about God's mercy, and ultimately, about the urgent necessity to pray and perform sacrifices for our brothers and sisters in purgatory, and to reform our lives so as to shorten our own stay in that place of real and awful suffering.

About the Author: Gerard J.M. van den Aardweg, Ph.D., is a Dutch psychotherapist in private practice.

He current resides in the Netherlands with his wife, with whom he has seven children and seventeen grandchildren.

    Hungry Souls....

    Hungry Souls: Supernatural Visits, Messages, and Warnings from Purgatory. This book will change your life, literally. It is simply a game changer. Reading these stories will show each of us the importance of our daily actions, daily sacrifices and the tremendous gift we can be to the suffering souls. I can't recommend it highly enough. I keep having to buy another copy, because I keep giving mine away to someone who shows interest in the subject. I have read it multiple times, each time is a blessing.

    The book was thorough, well researched, enlightening and thought provoking.

    I know more after reading this book about the possible events that might take place regarding the immediate after life based on the testimonies collected and reported. It has started a group talk among my friends who expressed an interest in reading it.

    What an excellent little book! We tend not to remember the poor Souls in the Church Suffering. They can’t pray for themselves and rely on us to help them. Powerful testimony here

    This is such a great "expose" on praying for those who have "gone before us with the sign of faith,"

    My sister lost her husband and her "middle" son within 2 years of one another. Since she did not have good catechesis in the 1970's, she needed this book to give her hope as she prays for the repose of the souls of her husband and her son. It offered her great consolation.

    Would recommend to anyone interested in knowing more about the poor souls in Purgatory. A little 'slow' reading at the beginning; but became more captivating as I read on. Enjoyed viewing the pictures and the accounts of visitations. I believe it is important to pray, on a daily basis, for these souls awaiting entrance into Heaven. I pray, especially, for those, who have no one to intercede for them.

    Insightful documentation of Purgatory's existence and it's true meaning to the living and deceased. And how it all works together.
