Women from Jerusalem in Purgatory
In the morning while I was praying, the angel came and took me to Purgatory. We visited many souls in different parts of Purgatory, to offer them consolation and encouragement. As we were about to leave this one particular area, a group of souls approached us.
They came up very close to us. This particular group were all ladies. There were about twenty of them. Their skin was a slightly olive tone. They were very friendly and kind. They called me by name, “Valentina!”
One of them in the group said, “We came from Jerusalem. We were born there.”
I was so happy to hear this. I said, “Jerusalem! What a privilege.”
They said, “While we were on earth, we took it for granted that we were born in Jerusalem. But now we know, and now we have to suffer. Jerusalem is the most holy city on earth. God lived there and He walked among His people there. He chose Jerusalem and everything happened there.”
These women were not in a bad part of Purgatory. They begged me to pray for them. They said, “Valentina! Please pray for us, so that our Lord will be merciful to us.”
Today, during Holy Mass I offered them to our Lord.
