They would say, “We are hungry.”

They keep saying, “Valentina, offer us to our Lord and help us.”

As I was coming out of this depressing place, all of a sudden, I had pieces of meat and bread in my hands, and I was tasting them. They tasted sour and bitter—so horrible. I said, “Poor people. The bitterness is the sin they carry.”

Outside, I could see more people—a group of ladies, and they were sitting down. One of them spoke to me. She said, “While I was alive, I was sick.”

I said to her, “Why didn’t you ask our Lord to help you?”

She said, “I never thought of asking Him.”

I said, “I will pray for you.”

Maybe she has to stay longer in Purgatory because she never offered her sickness to our Lord. It is important to offer all your suffering to our Lord, as it benefits your soul and can help others.

While talking to this group of ladies about prayer and how I would help them, I was looking up to talk to our Lord, to offer Him these souls, when, suddenly, a very saintly young lady in white appeared. She approached me and wanted to embrace me, but I didn’t want her to do that because she was sniffling.

I said, “No, no! I don’t want to get the cold.”

She smiled and said, “No, no. I don’t have a cold. I am just sniffling.”

She said, “Valentina, I come to tell you beautiful news. You have a holy shrine in your heart. You have our Lord and Holy Mary in you, and you carry them everywhere. They live in there. Wherever you go, they are with you. Be very happy—they love you, and no one can harm you. “

So surprised at this news, I said to the saintly lady, “I wouldn’t know this!”

“I appreciate this, and I thank the Lord Jesus and my Holy Mother Mary for this grace,” I said.

She said, “Believe it. It is true. I was sent by our Lord Jesus.”
