My Uncle Mike was an Irish Catholic born in the 1920s. He moved to Canada in the late 1940s. He thought, and I’m sure others did that there would be another war in Europe. He never married and later in 1980s moved to London to help after our parents had died. He was very helpful and kind to me. In 1996 he moved to Ireland as he felt he had helped enough and had become tired of London. Sadly one evening while out walking he was killed as he crossed the road. My Dad had also died the same way . While I knew him, he professed to be an atheist but would always mention some aspect of Catholicism in a jocular slightly sarcastic way.
Once my wife The Little Prophet received her gift, I was able to enquire about my family and where their souls were located. At the time I had discovered twelve who were nearly all Catholics who were placed in Purgatory. I have eight left as my wife and I have helped get four out of purgatory. Some of them had been there for nearly forty years and had waited until I knew where they were so I could pray for them. Uncle Mike was there also and because of his atheism I’d always presumed he had been sent to Hell.
My Brother became my first person to pray for as he had died only a month before my wife started receiving messages from Heaven. There’s a natural hierarchy that exists in the mind in those cases. My brother entered Heaven on Christmas Day 2019. I was now free to focus on Uncle Mike.
During my Rosaries I would get tiny glimpses of him. The impression I got was of someone struggling to walk in the fog and that there were was a hole in the left side of his trousers. He stumbled about in confusion unable to walk upright properly.
19th April 2020:
Q: My Uncle Dear Lord what is the current situation with his soul?
Jesus: Please be restful in the peace that he is in. He was an unbeliever but in his heart, he knew I was his God. He is in a place of thought…. he is not suffering too much.
Q: Does he have smarter clothes?
Jesus: I can tell you he is wearing clothes that are pleasant.
Having known of my Uncles stubborn atheism while he was alive on earth. A place of thought would be a section of purgatory where he would reflect on his earthly thoughts after having been in the purifying and painful lower parts of purgatory. I would guess a place of thought is located mid to higher Purgatory. Once a soul reaches the top part of purgatory, they are able to speak to other souls awaiting heaven. This I discovered when my brother was at that stage.
The Pride of Mind was a hindrance in his life like it is for many of us. Many of us identify ourselves stubbornly with the pride of our intellectual presentation to others and others get used to this side of ourselves. Some times our words can bring money and power too.
I knew a priest who passed away in 2018 and I’ve placed him at the top of my priority list of ‘souls to pray for’. I also hear his voice as I devote a rosary to his soul. He says ‘thank you’ in humble quiet gratitude. My relatives who are still there are yet to make themselves known which makes me think they are still purifying in the lower levels.
It’s known that Our Blessed Mother brings refreshment to souls in purgatory. While praying for my priest friend I quickly in my mind viewed Our Blessed Mother bringing him a cup of light. This makes sense as the refreshment they pine for would be the love of God.
My feeling is that Jesus does have clemency for Catholics. I’m sure there are many Catholics in hell and Heaven also. I think in some cases Catholic souls in their lives are used by God for suffering for the salvation of other souls. Nearly all cases of stigmata for example are Catholics. This is only my thoughts but not based on any locution. I know that God has made me a suffering soul for the sake of others.
On the subject of how souls are judged we have learnt that being a ‘nice’ person isn’t necessarily the ticket into Purgatory or Heaven. My brother eventually went to Heaven and he was unfair and cruel to me much of my life. My brother in all honesty would admit that he wasn’t a nice guy, I’m not sure if I consider myself a nice guy as it sounds so corny. I think what happens in that transition time when we are faced with Jesus is crucial as he looks into our hearts. Also the factor of prayers; if they have been said for us by relatives.
Lent of 2019 began on March 6th.
While walking and praying at that time I felt a strong urge to pray for my brother so that he would let go of resentment and forgive others. I went on to say many Rosaries for him. He passed away on April the 16th 2019.
My Uncle is also now in Heaven.
