[The next night] I saw my Guardian Angel,
who ordered me to follow him.
In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire
in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently,
but to no avail, for themselves;
only we can come to their aid.
The flames which were burning them
did not touch me at all.
My Guardian Angel did not leave me for an instant.
I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice
that their greatest torment was longing for God.
I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in Purgatory.
The souls call her “The Star of the Sea.”
She brings them refreshment.
[I heard an interior voice] which said,
My mercy does not want this,
but justice demands it.
