"For a long time, I have felt in myself a need to offer myself to the LORD as a victim for poor sinners, and for the souls in Purgatory. This desire has been growing continually in my heart so that now it has become what I call a strong passion...imploring on Him to lay on me the punishments that are prepared for sinners and for souls in Purgatory, so long as He converts and saves sinners and quickly releases the souls in Purgatory. It seems to me that Jesus wants this." Letter to Father Benedetto Nardella, 1910.
