Why would a soul in purgatory, who saw God for only a second, ever want to come back to earth? Weird that a priest would say that... I'd say they're probably demons trying to lie, as they do best, that they're from purgatory.
Anyway I realized recently that my mom miscarried a 10-week baby girl, and so OH MY GOODNESS I have a sister in heaven
! I'm going to ask her to pray for me from now on.
Also this is sort of related... I recently found out that a woman I've known for a while went was at a catholic hospital for heart problems when she was six, and died. She actually met Jesus!!
And He showed her His wounds and talked to her, basically an introduction since her parents had baptized her and that was it. She said how beautiful He was! But then she had to come back, and so they said their goodbyes and she was back, and for a while she saw the crucifix on the wall bleeding, and she had to shout, He's alive! He's alive!!! And she yelled so much the nuns wouldn't let her leave the room
All Souls Day is the best! I know some people get into the Halloween debates, but from personal preference I like All Saint's and All Souls' way more! What a beautiful time of year
