A Change is Possible

A while back I posted some quotes in response to a reader's question about the state of the soul after death and the possibility of repentance. As a follow-up, I found this quote interesting:

"How do our prayers for the dead affect those who have died? Bishop Maximos Aghiorgoussis wrote in a chapter entitled, 'Orthodox Soteriology', which appeared in a book called, 'Salvation in Christ', that a partial judgment is instituted immediately after our physical death, which places us in an intermediate condition of partial blessedness (for the righteous), or partial suffering (for the unrighteous). Disavowing a belief in the Western Purgatory, our Church believes that a change is possible during this intermediate state and stage." (emphasis added)
