St. Faustina visits Purgatory with Guardian Angel

“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 without effect for themselves; only we can come to their aid. The flames which were burning them do 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 heard an interior voice] which said, My mercy does not want this, but justice demands it.”
— St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, p. 35
