On our Instagram stories today we shared about some of the many saints who were given visions of Purgatory during their time on earth. Saint Faustina speaks of her visions of Purgatory in her diary, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I saw my Guardian Angel, who ordered me to follow him. In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid. The flames which were burning them did not touch me at all. My Guardian Angel did not leave me for an instant. I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice that their greatest torment was longing for God. I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in Purgatory. The souls call her ‘The Star of the Sea.’ She brings them refreshment. I wanted to talk with them some more, but my Guardian Angel beckoned me to leave. We went out of that prison of suffering. [I heard an interior voice] which said, ‘My mercy does not want this, but justice demands it.’ Since that time, I am in closer communion with the suffering souls.” (Diary, 20) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I’ll be praying the #DivineMercyChaplet LIVE from a cemetery nearby (via the #ChurchPOP Facebook page). Join me in praying for the holy souls in Purgatory. 🙏🏻
