Prophecies of Anne Catherine Emmerich 4

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
(1774-1824)

Prophecies of
Anne Catherine Emmerich .....Part 4


On the Depths of Purgatory.........section 2

1)..." I cannot say exactly where purgatory lies. But when going there I generally journey northward awhile when leaving the earth by a gloomy, difficult road of water, snow, briars, swamps, etc., I descend by dark aerial paths as if far under the earth to dismal places of different degrees of cold, fog and obscurity. I go around among souls in higher or lower positions, of more or less difficult access. Last night I went among them all, consoling them and receiving their commissions for various labors. I had to say right off the Litany of the Saints and the Seven Penitential Psalms. My guide warned me to guard carefully against impatience and to offer every vexation for the poor souls. The other morning I almost forgot his admonition and was on the point of yielding to impatience, but I repressed it. I am very glad I did so, and I thank my good angel for helping me. No words can say what immense consolation the poor souls receive from a little sacrifice, a trifling self-victory." (Vol II pp 254-255)

2) Nov 2, 1821.--For fourteen days, Sister Emmerich had been constantly occupied with the poor souls, offering for them prayers, mortifications, alms and spiritual labors, and arranging numerous things to be given away on the Feast of All-Souls(Nov 2). She related the following :--"I went again with the saints to purgatory. The prisons of the souls are not all in the same place, they are far apart and very different. The road to them often lies over icebergs, snow and clouds; sometimes it winds all around the earth. The saints float lightly by me on luminous clouds of various colors, according to the different kinds of help and consolation their good works and entitle them to bestow. I had to travel painful, rugged paths, pray the while and offering it all for the souls. I reminded the saints of their own sufferings, and offered them to God in union with the merits of Jesus Christ for the same intention.
The abodes of the the souls differ according to each one's state, yet they all struck me as being round like globes. I can compare them only to those places which I call gardens and in which I see certain graces preserved like fruits; so, too, are these sojourns of the souls like gardens, storehouses, worlds full of disagreeable things, privations, torments, miseries, anguish, etc., etc., and some are much smaller than others. When I arrive I can clearly distinguish their round form and perhaps a ray of light falling on some point, or twilight on the horizon. Some are a little better than others, but in none can the blue sky be seen, all are more or less dark and obscure. In some the souls are near one another and in great agony; some are deeper down, and others higher and clearer." (Vol II p 255).

3) "The places in which souls are separately confined are also of various forms: for instance, some are shaped like ovens. They who were united on earth are together in purgatory only when they have need of the same degree of purification. In many places the light is colored, that is fiery, or of a dull red. There are other abodes in which evil spirits persecute, frighten, and torment the souls, and these are the most horrible. One would take them for hell, did not the inexpressibly touching patience of the souls proclaim the contrary.
Words can not describe their consolation and joy when one among them is delivered. There are also places for penitential works, as those in which I once saw them raising and storming ramparts, the women on the islands cultivating the fruits which were taken away on rafts, etc. These souls are in a less suffering state; they can do something for others worse off than themselves. It may be symbolical, but it is symbolical of truth. The vegetation is scanty and stunted, the fruits the same; yet they afford relief to those still more needy. Kings and princes are often thrown with those whom they once oppressed and whom they now serve in humble suffering."(Vol II p 256)

4) "I have seen in purgatory Protestants who were pious in their ignorance; they are very desolate, for no prayers are offered for them."(Vol II p 256)

5) "I saw souls passing from a lower to a higher grade to fill up the vacancies left by some who had finished their purgation. Some can go around giving and receiving consolation. It is a great grace to be able to appear and beg help and prayers. I have also seen the places in which some souls canonized on earth were purified; their sanctity had not reached its perfection in their lifetime. I went to many priests and churches and ordered Masses and devotions for the souls." (Vol II p 256)

6) "I was at Rome in St Peter's, near noble ecclesiastics, Cardinals, I think, who had to say seven Masses for certain souls. I know not why they had ommitted doing so. Whilst they were being said, I saw the neglected souls, dark and sad, gathered around the altar; they exclaimed, as if hungry: 'We have not been fed for so long!'--I think it was foundation Masses that had been neglected. The confiscation of foundations for Masses for the dead is, as I see, unspeakable cruelty and a theft committed against the poorest of the poor. On my route I saw few if any of the living, but I met souls, angels, and saints, and I saw many of the effects of prayer. During these days, I have had to drag to the confessional and to church many people who otherwise would never have gone." (Vol II pp 256-257)

7) Nov 2, 1822--"Last night I had much to do in purgatory. I went northward and, as it seemed, around the pole of the globe. I saw the icebergs above me; and yet purgatory does not appear to be at the centre, for I can see the moon. In going around among the prisons, I tried to make an opening that a little light might enter. The outside looks like a shining black wall in the form of a crescent; inside are innumerable chambers and passages, high and low, ascending and descending. Near the entrance it is not so bad, the souls are free to move around; but further on they are more strictly imprisoned. Here lies one stretched as it were in a hole, a ditch, there several are together in different positions, higher and lower; sometimes, one is seen seated on high as if on a rock. the further we penetrate, the more frightful it becomes, for demons there exercise their power. It is a temporary hell in which souls are tormented by horrible spectres and hideous forms that wander around, persecuting and terrifying their victims." (Vol II p 258)

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would
never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
