if it is not in the bible can you tell me where the concept came from?
thanks so much

i thought that purgatory was not scripture based and was no longer taught in the catholic church.
I agree that you're probably confusing limbo and purgatory. Limbo was never a dogma of the Catholic Church - it was more a theological concept. There was a question of what exaclty happens to unbaptized babies - they did not commit any actual sin to go to hell, however they are born with original sin and nothing unclean can enter heaven. Some theologicans speculated about a place of perfect happiness - not heaven or hell - for unbaptized babies. It was called limbo along the lines of where righteous souls went before Christ opened the gaves of heaven (aka Limbo of the Fathers). What the Catholic Church recently said that while we don't know for sure what happens, it's reasonable to hope that unbaptized infants go to heaven.
