Souls Suffering for Committing Adultery

This morning, the Angel took me to Purgatory, where I encountered a woman running and running. She could not stop.

I said to her, “Stop running! Why are you running?”

She said, “I am running because it is my punishment. I was married, and then I fell in love with another man who was married.”

I asked, “But you knew that he was married?”

“Yes,” she replied. “I knew, but I didn’t care. I wanted him.”

I said, “But see, you should not have stayed with a married man because he didn’t belong to you.”

“Well, I fell in love with him, and I wanted him. I chased him everywhere,” she said.

“See how you have to suffer now!” I said.

“Now I have to run and run, the same way I was chasing him while I was alive.”

I said, “You know that adultery is wrong? You knew that he was married, and you were still chasing him.”

She then revealed, “It is not only me. There are many here in this place that did what I did. They were married, and they were having affairs with other men, and now they are very much punished.”
