This had me thinking . . . What could have St. Faustina have done for God to send her to the fire of purgatory for one day? Is this for sins not confessed? Or if this time in purgatory is for our life in totem: all of our failings, inaction, actions, thoughts but not necessarily sins? I wish I had either a rear view mirror or a time machine to be able to look back into my life to be able to change mistakes and right wrongs that I committed.
We need to pray often and rely on God’s grace to guide us in our decision-making as we go through each day.
God ended up sending Faustina back to earth to endure great suffering for a short period of time, to go through her purgatory here on earth instead of in the afterlife. This had me wondering, how many of our sufferings here on earth is Jesus looking out for us and having us endure the pain in the present in our lives on earth, living out our purgatories here on earth, instead of experiencing a harsher penalty, a harsher pain, in the afterlife? Our Father knows best for us so if we are going through sufferings and tough times here on earth there must be a very good reason, whether it be God has a special mission for us in this life or in the next life.
