St. Augustine and Purgatory

St. Augustine and Purgatory
Question from wayne on 6/11/2008:

Dear Father Levis, I had read that St. Augustine held the belief that no souls would be released from Purgatory until the Last Judgment or the End of the World. Was this held as the Church's position in the Middle Ages?

Though I know this is not the present position of the Church, it does sound plausable since a large part of the agony consists of the Poor Soul's knowing what they are missing in Heaven and being unable to be released when they would like to.

Wayne, Sorry, I am not familiar with St. Augustine's quote. Fr. Bob Levis
