Purgatory not a place as we know it
Of course! It, heaven, hell and possibly limbo and the aerial plane some Orthodox talk about (the toll-houses version of the particular judgement) are states of being or, to put it in science-fictiony terms, dimensions you can’t describe in terms of space (their ‘space’ could well overlap ours – for example the aerial plane and our atmosphere – but normally we can’t see it).

More on the intermediate state and prayer for the dead.
