Poor Souls from the English countryside
During my morning prayers the Angel appeared to me.
He smiled and said to me, “Come with me, I will take you to a place that you
have never been to before.”
All of a sudden we were in a beautiful countryside. Very green and lush.
I asked the Angel, “Where is this?”
He said, “This is England, the countryside of England.”
We were standing about ten metres away from an old building. This building looked like a castle. It was very, very long in length.”
I was thinking, “What do I have to do with this?”
I then saw on a wooden partition a beautiful little bird. It looked like a willie wagtail. It was singing, and joyfully fluttering its tail.
I said to the Angel, “Oh what a beautiful little bird. What is it doing?”
The Angel smiled and said, “Our Lord Jesus put it there for you to see. Would
you like to know why I brought you here?”
He then pointed to the Castle.
“See, in that Castle, there are many poor souls who have been imprisoned there for over a century. They are not allowed to go out and you are the one who has to release them.” The Angel said this with a smile on his face.
“That’s why I brought you here, so that you can release them.”
“Oh,” I said, “Why me? How come they have been kept in prison for so long?”
The Angel said, “Nobody prayed for them. They were forgotten.”
We were not allowed to go inside the castle. The poor souls imprisoned in there were from a royal household, including Counts, Princes and their servants. I sensed that they were in complete darkness, in a dungeon within the castle.
The Angel said, “See this bird, how happy it is, it was brought here for a reason. It is free, it sings and is happy and that is how the Souls would like to be, free and out of prison.”
While we were standing and watching the castle, the Angel turned to me and said, “Valentina, do you want to know something? You are the one who releases most of the Holy Souls, thousands and thousands of them. They are purified and then they can go to Heaven.”
In my heart I said, “I hope that soon they will be released.”
