From PURGATORY, Catholic Information Society, Imp. John Whealon, page 10.

"In demonstrating the reasonableness of a doctrine, theologians use what

they call an `argument of fitness.' What this means is that once a doctrine

is revealed, it can be shown to be consistent with all the rest of revealed

doctrine. It `fits' in very well with God's ways of doing things and,

further, appears as `not unreasonable.' Or to state this another way, the

doctrine can be shown to be credible."
