  • 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.

    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.

    Hungry Souls review

    I'm so glad I read this while there is still time to influence my eternal destination. A lot of people think all you have to do is believe in God and Jesus, all your sins are forgiven, and off you go to Heaven. Purgatory is real and painful, like Hell, only real difference seems to be that you will get out of Purgatory EVENTUALLY, but you may spend decades in it suffering until then. I'm warning my family and friends, and encouraging them to read this book.

    Very interesting!

    My sister grabbed the book before I even had a chance to start reading it and she finds it to be VERY interesting!
    A book everyone should read NOW! If we are to understand what lies ahead it is important to read. Very insightful.

    This book answered many questions I've had. It has been some time that I felt a deep need to pray for the souls in purgatory and now I know why. This book has opened my eyes to the suffering the poor souls go through. It's a very good and educational book. I'm happy that I read it.

    I didn't like this book at all. It seemed very demon-filled. God is a God of unconditional love, not punishment. The book left my spirit very unsettled. It instills fear. You can't earn your way to heaven. It's through the awareness of our sins (humility), God's mercy and the condition of our hearts (love of Christ and others) that is the focus of our journey here on earth, not demons coming to life to scare us into behaving - purgatory can't be that.
