Our Lord calls Purgatory a Prison
In the morning while I was praying, I found myself with the angel. He said, “We have to visit souls today who are waiting for you to help them.”
Suddenly we found ourselves in one part of Purgatory. It looked like the middle part, as it was a vast open space and it was full of light. I saw people running and walking at high speed. I saw many children with their mothers. The children looked to be between the ages of five to eight years. They were constantly running, along with their mothers.
As we came closer to them, the angel said, “You can ask them questions.”
So I started to talk to them and asked them, “Why are you here?”
They said, “We have been here for a long time. Nobody has helped us. For instance, when the Bishop came to the area where we were living on earth, we didn’t attend the instalment ceremony for the new Bishop. The ceremony was too long, so we avoided it. We were disobedient for doing what we did.”
“By being disobedient, we offended God very much, by abusing His Grace. The Bishops are very important, as they represent Jesus Christ on earth. Now that we know how we offended God we would like to go back to do reparation and to be obedient to our Lord, but it is too late now. That is why we are constantly on the move.”
The angel said, “The Bishop in the church must be respected. He has been chosen by God. He has been placed there as the Bishop. He has authority to lead people to God.”
I was watching how all the souls in this part of Purgatory, are always in flight. They cannot stand still, they have to keep moving at high speed, zipping from one place to another. I understood that the unceasing running motion for these souls is their penance, and their souls are not in peace.
One moment they were standing next to me, then in a flash they were running away and disappearing and then coming back again. This they did continuously.
They told me, “In the earthly time we have to travel for two hours and then come back and then we have to go to another place and do the same. There is no plane to take us, we have to walk there.”
They were making me nervous by the way they were rushing around so fast.
One young lady was in a severe state of panic, very restless and nervous. I said to her, “Just a minute! Let me bless you, Jesus will give you peace.”
As I was about to bless the young lady, a group of souls also stepped towards me, and each of them allowed me to bless them.
I made the Sign of the Cross on each of their foreheads and blessed them individually by saying the words,
“May Jesus give you pardon and mercy for all your offences and may He give you peace.”
They were so grateful that they were hugging me after that. I felt united with them, and I felt good for them. I tried to console them and tell them to be courageous and that I would help them.
The angel said, “Now we must leave.”
While the souls are in the presence of the angel and myself, they do not suffer, they stop running and moving. It is as if there is a momentary pause in their suffering. The angel does not like for us to stay too long with the souls, because each of the souls must continue with their penance and they must endure all the suffering and pain that is designated for them as part of their purification. As soon as we were leaving, I could see the souls running and moving again, they could no longer stay still.
If people on earth would only think a little about the afterlife, they would live differently. Instead, they do not worry and do not care so they will have to suffer afterwards. There is no break or relief in the suffering. Our Lord calls Purgatory a prison.
Lord, have mercy on these Holy Souls and may You grant them pardon and peace and embrace them in Your Heavenly Home.
