Blessed Mary: Does the day and the eighth of the Dead bring joy and cause numerous liberations in Purgatory?

R… The day of the Dead, many souls leave the place of atonement for Heaven and, by a great grace of the good God, that day only all purging souls, without exception, participate in the benefit of the public prayers of the holy Church, even those of the great Purgatory. However, the alleviation of the penalties of each soul is proportionate to its merit. One receives more, others less.

Nevertheless, they all feel the effects of this exceptional grace. Many poor souls purging, for a justice of God, receive only this one refreshment during the long years that they spend in Purgatory. However, not on the day of the Dead the greatest number of souls rises to Heaven, but on Christmas Eve.

There are many things I could tell you, but I do not have permission. It is necessary for you to question me. Then I can answer you. I am very comforted by the effective prayers of the Rev. Father. Tell him that I thank him for his and for those he has the charity to make do my intention. For him I always pray, as I told you. I hope to do even more when I’m in Heaven. Tell him also that I know that he prays for me and that the same thing happens for the other souls in Purgatory. For a permission of the good God, this constitutes a suffering more for them, because the prayers that are made according to their intention are not always applied to them. Of the prayers of the earth, in Purgatory one receives only as much as God wants each soul to receive according to its disposition. It is a pain added to others for these poor souls to see that the prayers that are made for their liberation are applied not to them, but to others. Very few souls receive prayers, most are abandoned, without a single memory or a single prayer of the earth.

We know nothing about the time of our liberation. If we knew the term of our sufferings, this would be a relief, a joy for us, but no! We see well that our pains diminish, that our union becomes more intimate, but what day (according to the calculations of the earth, because here there are no days) we will be reunited to Him, we ignore it altogether. This is a secret of the good God.

The souls of Purgatory know of the future only as much as God permits and wants to give them knowledge. In proportion to their merits, some souls have more knowledge than others, but all these things concerning the future, what advantage can they bring us, unless the glory of the good God and the good of some souls are of interest to you?

We should not be surprised if the Devil and his followers sometimes provide, around the future, the knowledge that is realized. The Devil is a spirit, consequently, he possesses tricks and knowledge far more numerous than any person on earth, except for some saints whom the good Lord enlightens with his light. He wanders everywhere, trying to hurt. He sees what happens in the world and, because of his prudence, he can easily foresee things that are realized: this is the only explanation. Woe to those who become his slaves by consulting him, this is a pity that is very sorry for the good God.

Blessed Mary: Can souls sometimes make mistakes? Can God allow it?

R… Yes …, not with regard to existing things, but to those to come, yet there is no imperfection in them. Does not God himself often seem to change the order of his drawings (1)? Here is how: it can happen that God, in his justice, wants to punish a kingdom, a province, a person: it is the intention that he manifests, but if some people of this kingdom, of this province, with prayer or by other means they disarm his justice, God will totally forgive or diminish the punishment according to the predictions of his infinite wisdom. Often it allows great events to be predicted in advance, that is, he makes them known to some souls, so that they may prevent and stop his vengeance: his mercy is so great that He does not punish except at the extremes. So in regard to the person, one day you spoke to me: I did not tell you the things as they happened there. Nevertheless it was all that the good God of it made me know then, but since it changed a little conduct, the good Lord inflicted only half of the punishment that was reserved to her, had she remained in the same dispositions. Here’s how it sometimes seems that you’re wrong:

(1) This way of speaking is in conformity with human language which sees only succession and change over time … But for God there is no time and consequently no succession and no change: its decrees, foreseen and fixed by all eternity, they are immutable and eternal as He Himself.

R… We know that the Church is persecuted and we pray for her triumph, but when will this happen? I ignore it … It may be that some souls know it! As for me I do not know.

In Purgatory, souls do not remain solely occupied with their pains, they pray a lot for the great interests of the good God, for the people who shorten their sufferings. They praise and thank Our Lord for his infinite mercies in their regard, because for some of them the space that separates Purgatory from Hell has been very limited and little lacked that they did not fall into the abyss. Consider then how great is the gratitude of these poor souls so torn from Satan.

I can not explain to you how we no longer see the earth as you see it, this can not be understood except when the soul has left the body, because then the earth that she has left, abandoning her body to it, no longer seems like a point in comparison to the boundless horizons of eternity that is revealed for she.

We must not pay attention to “what will you say?”. The real merit of a soul does not consist in receiving patiently the reproaches that it deserves a little, but in patiently receiving those that it does not deserve, especially when it has done everything in its power to accomplish in the best possible way reproaches.

I receive more relief from your action accomplished in a great union with Jesus, than from a vocal prayer, for what does the good God grant? All that is done with an inner spirit. The more intimate the union of a soul with Him is, the more He grants it all that He asks. A soul intimately united with Jesus is the master of his Heart. So you tend to this union that Jesus so long waits for you. Would you like to enjoy it? Here is the only way: to draw ever closer to his Heart by paying great attention to the smallest desires of his divine will. It is necessary for him to turn around and turn you over as he will please you and never meet resistance on your part. When you have come to this, then you will see and understand his goodness.

Take serious care to work for God alone. Always look for Him only as a witness of your actions. Likewise, before any action, beware of brooding things like this: “I will do this to please that person, if I do that in that way, I will accept that other person”. The good God does not like these human reasonings on the part of anyone and even less. Only direct your intention towards the goal of pleasing your Jesus, to Him alone. If, in doing so, you do something grateful to someone, the better. If the opposite happens, so much worse! The good God will be happy, this must be all for you.

8 DECEMBER2 am – Immaculate Conception.

Alas! how many lives appear full of good works and, at death, they will be empty … because all those good things in appearance, all those clamorous actions, all that conduct that seemed irreproachable, all this did not have Jesus only as an end. We wanted to make a figure, to shine, to pass rightly observing the obligations of the Religion, for a religious faithful to the rule, here is the only motive of many existences. And in the other life, here, what a disappointment! If you knew how few people act for God alone, how few do all their actions for God alone … Alas! how many regrets are prepared for the point of death, when they will no longer be blinded, alas! If it were sometimes reflected in eternity! What is life compared to that day that will not have evening for the elect, to that evening that will not have day for the reprobate?

We love everything on earth, we become attached to everything, except to the One who alone should have our affection and to whom we deny it. The Jesus of the tabernacle waits for hearts that love Him and find none. Just one in a thousand who loves Him as one should love Him! Love you, make up for this indifference so guilty that there is in the world!

Blessed Mary: But do you love Him in Purgatory?

R… Certainly, but ours is a love of reparation, and if on earth we had loved Him as we should, we would not be numerous, there would not be so many souls in the place of expiation.

Blessed Mary: In Heaven, is Jesus much loved?

R... In Heaven we love Him very much. There is compensation, but it is not yet this that Jesus desires. He would like to be loved on earth, on this earth, where he is annihilated in every tabernacle, so that approaching Him is easier, and it is not done. We pass in front of a Church with more indifference than in front of a public monument. If you sometimes enter the holy place, it is more to outrage the divine Prisoner who resides there, with his own coldness, with bad behavior, with prayers made in a hurry, without attention, that to give him a cordial word, a friendly word of gratitude for his goodness to us.

Tell the Reverend Father P. that the good Lord awaits from him this love which he seldom meets so rarely from him, who every day approaches him so close to Jesus, who receives him in his heart. Oh! tell him that, in those blessed moments, repair with his tenderness the indifference of so many ungrateful, that his heart is struck with love before Jesus-Host, above all for his Priests who, like him, have the same happiness and who treat the holy mysteries with a heart of ice, which remain cold like marble before this brazier of love, and that do not have an affectionate word to say to Jesus. His union with the good God is every day more intimate, so that to prepare for the great graces that Jesus has given him.

I told you that there are souls who do their purgatory at the altars. They do not stand there in punishment for the faults they have committed in the Church, such faults which directly offend Jesus present in the tabernacle, are severely punished in Purgatory. Therefore, the souls who are there in adoration are rather rewarding you for their devotion to the Blessed Sacrament and their respectful behavior in the holy place. They suffer less than if they were in true Purgatory, and Jesus, whom they contemplate with the eyes of the soul and of faith at the same time, sweetens them with his invisible presence, the sufferings they suffer.

JANUARY 1880.

On Christmas Eve, thousands of souls have left the place of atonement for Heaven, but many are left and I am of the number. Sometimes you tell me that the perfection of a soul takes a very long time, and it is true, I am also surprised by the fact that, despite so many prayers, I remain so long without being able to enjoy the vision of the good God. 

Alas! the perfection of a soul in Purgatory does not advance faster than on earth. There are some souls, and it is the least number, that have to expiate only some venial sins, they do not stay long in Purgatory. Some well-made prayers, some sacrifices free them in a short time. But when it comes to souls like me – and this is the case with almost everyone! – who have spent almost no life, caring little or almost at all for their salvation, we must, in this case…

This is why the liberation of souls sometimes makes us wait so long. The good Lord also gave me great grace, allowing me to ask for prayers. What I did not deserve, without this divine deignation, I would have remained here, like most, years and years!

Blessed Mary: Do the Religious and the others of the same family have relationships with each other?

R… In Purgatory, as in Heaven, the Religious of the same family do not always stay together, souls do not deserve the same punishment nor the same reward. However we recognize ourselves in Purgatory. One can also, when the good Lord allows it, have interchangeable relations.

Blessed Mary: can one receive a prayer, a thought from a deceased friend, and let him know the memory that is kept of him?

R…You can bring back memories of the earth here, but it is not very useful, because, as I have already told you, the souls in Purgatory know and know the people who are interested in them on earth. Sometimes God also allows us to receive a prayer, a warning, an advice … So, what I have told you several times about St. Michael came from him. What I told you about your father came from the good Lord. All the commissions you have often given me for the other world I have always performed, but all these things are subordinated to the divine will.

Blessed Mary: The faults of everyone are known by everyone in Purgatory, how will they be at the final judgment?

R… In Purgatory, we generally do not know the faults of others, except, however, when the good Lord permits it in regard to certain souls, for his designs, but the number of those to whom He acts in this way is small.

Blessed Mary: Have you, of the good God, a more perfect knowledge than ours?

R… Ah, what a question! But of course, we know it much better and we love it much more! Alas! precisely this causes our greatest torment here. On earth, one ignores what the good God is. He gets an idea of it according to his own narrow views, but we, in leaving our wrappers of mud, when nothing hinders the freedom of our soul, oh! then we only knew God, his goodness, his mercies, his love! After this vision so clear, this need so great of union (with Him), the soul always tends towards God, this is his life and, always, it is rejected, because it is not pure enough, here is our suffering: the hardest, the most sour. Oh! if we were allowed to return to earth, after having known the good God, what life we would lead! But, unnecessary regrets … and nevertheless on earth you do not think point to such things, you live like blind people. Eternity is not held in any account. The earth, which is nothing but a place of passage and which receives only the bodies, which, in turn, also become earth, is the only object towards which almost all desires tend, and to Heaven there is no thinks! And Jesus and his love are forgotten!…to be continued
