|Someone will be able to give you a much better answer, but here's my two cents: We believe that when you die, your soul may still be unclean from life on Earth. You may be living in sin, or have some other problem that would make you spiritually unclean. To enter heaven, your soul must be clean, so Purgatory is a place where your soul is cleansed. Those who go to purgatory know God, but just aren't in his presence yet.
So, Purgatory is a mercy. Since all humans sin, and all humans are imperfect, we should all go to Hell, right? Hell, the place where souls who have transgressed God's law and are destined to eternal separation from Him; that is what we deserve. But God is merciful. He knows that we cannot be perfect, and thus, he gave us Purgatory: a place to expiate our the punishment for our sins after death, rather than suffering forever in Hell. In Purgatory, our souls are cleansed so we can enter Heaven perfect, free from all stain of sin.
A person in Purgatory is helpless; he cannot speed up his process anymore, because he has died. The time on earth is the time where a soul can actively go good works to take away time in Purgatory. He is, indeed, reliant on the prayers of the Church Militant (the Church on earth) to get to Heaven.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
