The latest work by Michal Kondrat about life after death.
Author of “Love and Mercy: Faustina” and “Two Crowns”
“Purgatory” starring Małgorzata Kożuchowska – in selected movies theaters in USA in November
People have been wondering what awaits them after death since the beginning of time. And although nobody managed to penetrate the secret, there have been many people through the ages that could see more – like Fulla Horak, St. Faustina Kowalska or St. Padre Pio. These mystics – people who have been graced by the visits of souls from Purgatory – are only some of the protagonists of Michał Kondrat’s film entitled “Purgatory”. The new film from the creator of “ Love and Mercy: Faustina” and “Two Crowns”, which have been appreciated both in Poland and abroad, tells the story of souls living in bodies and souls that have already left this world. It is also a reminder – in film form – of the most outstanding theologians and scientists, who have been studying the state of human consciousness when the body dies.
One of them was St. Stanislaus Papczyński, who died September 17,1701. After the vision of the Holy Spirit, he founded the Marian Fathers, an order that aimed at promoting the adoration of the Immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary and interceded particularly for the dead. The memory of those who are no longer with us was particularly strong in him after the mystical experience of the vision of Purgatory and the souls suffering there. He recommended to his brethren: “Pray, brothers, for the souls in Purgatory, for they suffer an unbearable torment”. He also emphasized that there is no greater mercy than the one shown to the dead. But what it actually was that brought him to this fervent prayer? What did he see during his revelation and what exactly did he have to say about PURGATORY and life after death? You will get the answers to these questions in November.

St. Stanislaus Papczyński
During a visit to friends, Fulla Horak (Małgorzata Kożuchowska) meets a woman whose unwavering faith in God makes a huge impression on everyone. This meeting has left its mark on Fulla and forced her to go on a spiritual search and to go back to the values that she had rejected years before. One night, while immersed in prayer, Fulla experiences a revelation. Madeleine Sophie Barat, the founder of the Sciety of the Sacred Heart, who had died 70 years before, appears to her. She is one of the first souls of the Holy Guardians who will visit the mystic. Others, including John Bosco, Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, or Joan of Arc, uncovered the incredible knowledge of heaven, hell, and purgatory to her. Fulla would describe all these experiences in her book entitled “Beautiful Lady” in the chapter “The Beyond”. The wisdom contained in it will go beyond time and space, connecting into one the spiritual experiences of Fulla and the revelations of St. Padre Pio, Blessed Father Stanislaus Papczyński and St. Faustina Kowalska.
