Mark of Ephesus in his First Homily on Purgatory Against the Latins says:

 

4. After this, a little further on, you desired to prove the above-mentioned dogma of purgatorial fire, at first quoting what is said in the book of Maccabees: It is holy and pious….to pray for the dead…that they might be delivered from their sin (2 Maccabees 12:44-45). Then, taking from the Gospel according to Matthew the place in which the Saviour declares that “whosoever shall speak against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this world, nor in that which is to come” (Matt. 12:32), you say that form this one may see that there is remission of sins in the future life.
