During my morning prayers, the angel appeared and took me to Purgatory. There I saw so many, many souls. It seemed as if the whole world was there. They were all begging for me to help them. They said, “We all know you, and they told us that you can help us to relieve us from this suffering.”
They asked, “Do you have any bread or anything to give us to eat? We are very hungry.”
Thinking as I would being of this world, I replied, “I don’t have anything right here with me now, but if you come to my house, then I will share my food with you.”
The angel smiled with amusement while listening to what I was telling the Holy Souls. He explained, “You momentarily relieve them from their suffering as you are talking to them. However, what you should do is to offer them at Holy Mass and offer the Holy Eucharist, and that is the spiritual food for which they are waiting, which will relieve them from their suffering.”
We then left Purgatory, but I was quite depressed as I felt all their suffering come upon me. The angel said, “Our Lord allowed you to experience how they suffer so that you will feel more compassionate towards them, to help them.”
The angel said, “Now I will take you to Heaven so that you will feel much better. There is a person there who is eagerly awaiting to meeting you, and you will feel instantly better.”
Suddenly, we found ourselves in an open field where many people were waiting. These people were all dressed in ordinary clothes.
I exclaimed to the angel, “There are more people! Are these the same people we just left?”
The angel replied, “No, this is Heaven; these are souls in Heaven.”
These people were very happy, singing joyously. A young boy approached me and started singing right in front of me.
I said to him, “Gee, that is a beautiful voice you have.”
He said, “I am overwhelmed and so happy to be here.”
Suddenly, out of this crowd of people, a lady approached me with open arms and called my name. She ran towards me and hugged me, kissed me, and then lifted me. She was a very jolly woman wearing a long, pale blue gown with white trimming around the lapel. Her grey hair was pulled back with slight curls framing her face.
She said to me, “Valentina, it is so nice to see you, and what a privilege to meet you. I heard about you and we all know about you here in Heaven.”
She introduced herself and said, “I am Mother Angelica. Finally, we meet.”
I said, “What a privilege to meet you. What are you doing here? Who are all these people?”
She answered, “You see, all these people are waiting to be called to be given their duties. Everybody has a duty to perform; they don’t just sit around. Life continues.”
“They are put in order, four by four. Whatever their duty is, they do it in groups of four.”
I watched the people and noticed that when they were given their duties, their clothes changed from the ordinary clothes they were wearing to beautiful white gowns.
I asked Mother Angelica, “What are you doing now in Heaven?”
She smiled and said, “They want me to be in charge of all these people.”
She then whispered to me, “I don’t really want to be a leader, but I have no choice, I have to obey.”
I said, “That is a privilege to be a chosen leader.”
She said, “Valentina, be courageous. Spread the Holy Word that our Lord Jesus teaches you, and in this way, you console Him. Do not be afraid. Our Lord is very offended by the world. The world is very sinful.”
Mother Angelica also told me that most of the people there were the ones for which I suffered when they were in Purgatory.
