The visionaries of Medjugorje have said a great deal about purgatory, but perhaps the most important thing they have said is that it is a place of great suffering. They have described it as a place of fog and pain, where souls are purified of their sins before they can enter heaven.
The visionaries have also said that purgatory is a place of great love, where souls are surrounded by the love of God and the angels. They have said that souls in purgatory are very grateful for the prayers and sacrifices that are offered for them on earth, and that these prayers and sacrifices help to shorten their time in purgatory.
The visionaries have also said that purgatory is a place of great hope, because souls there know that they will eventually be reunited with God in heaven. They have said that souls in purgatory are eager to enter heaven, and that they pray for the living to help them to make their way there.
The visionaries’ messages about purgatory can help us to understand the importance of prayer and sacrifice for the souls in purgatory. They can also help us to understand the great love and mercy of God, who offers us a second chance to be with Him in heaven.

What surprises people is not only prayers to the deceased benefit those in Purgatory but they can help you here in your earthly life. Very few people know this. Here the message from Our Lady from 1986 “Dear children! Today I wish to call you to pray daily for souls in purgatory. For every soul prayer and grace is necessary to reach God and the love of God. By doing this, dear children, you obtain new intercessors who will help you in life to realize that all the earthly things are not important for you, that only Heaven is that for which it is necessary to strive. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing that you may be able to help yourselves and the others to whom your prayers will bring joy. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”
