Catechesis: Confession and Satisfaction
It has been said before that saints suffer punishments, which are God’s works. They suffer contrition or terrors; they also suffer other common troubles. So, for example, some suffer punishments of their own that have been applied by God….Although troubles still remain, Scripture interprets these as the putting to death of present sin, and not as payments of eternal death or as prices for eternal death.—Ap XIIB:59, 60.
