Some souls suffer terribly in purgatory until their debts are reimbursed.

In Austria, Father Augustine, a Jesuit priest, was so merciful to the souls in purgatory that these souls appeared to him frequently and asked for his favor.

One day, while he was meditating, a rich man who was dead appeared to him and asked, “Do you know who I am?” “Yes, I know you. I heard your confession when you were in your death agony” answered the priest.

And the soul said, “What you say is true. And since I am suffering greatly in purgatory, I came to give you this message, as willed by God. Please show me mercy.” The priest promised to help him.

But he continued: “Father, I have to pay back some debts. I received money from many as a debt, but I deceived them. I borrowed jewels, but cheated them too, though I was capable to return them to their owners. Now my purgatory will not end up until I pay back my debts.” Then he took the priest out of the monastery and he gave jewels and money which he heretofore kept underground and also a list of persons to whom they were to be returned. Then he begged the priest to do this work for him and then disappeared. The priest also paid back to everyone in the list the money or jewels, due to them.

On the eighth day after the reimbursement, the soul once again appeared to the priest and thanked him for the great help he did to it. “Thanks to your help, I am relieved from my pains and now going to heaven. I will surely pray for you to our Lord” it said and then disappeared.

After your death, your relatives and your children may only look for their living and they may not take care to settle your debts.

The priest, once he came to know the pains of a soul, came forward to help it without any delay. You too, do not delay in helping the suffering souls through your reparatory acts. Even though you do not see them, realize that they are suffering horribly and be merciful on them. That soul, when ascending to heaven, told the priest that it would pray for him to our Lord. All the souls which go to heaven through your help will unfailingly pray for you.

Christians! If you are indebted to anyone, do not dare to cheat him. Pay the money back, no matter whether the amount is small or large. Do it while still you are in this world. Do not forget that otherwise, you will have to face a very severe punishment in purgatory.
