“Therefore [Judas Maccabeus] made atonement for the dead, that they might be delivered from their sin.” (2 Macc 12:46)
It’s mentioned right there.
Do you believe that the Bible is the Word of Our Lord? Then it was mentioned, wasn’t it?
Do Catholics still offer up their suffering for the souls in Purgatory?

I would reply what you quote above is not in the bible. This quote is in opposition to Jesus Who said He alone paid for all sin and if another gospel is preached not to follow it.
