PURGATORY BELIEVED BY MANY RELIGIONS!
The ministry was given me by God, by Jesus and Mary specifically. Mary has a very active part in purgatorial work, and She appeared to me many years ago to give me my first celebrity in purgatory (as an infant, I did not know who he was till later) and it was Errol Flynn. You can read the entire e book on my site on this.
Why I was given the ministry: For one reason, because I prayed daily, fer vently, that God would help them.
Secondly, because I practiced celibacy and another gift I had been given during the betrothal with Jesus was that I would have 'spiritual relationships with men.' And this followed along with that.
As far as why a ministry to purgtory? Why pray for them, why suffer for them? When the mercy of God is enough. Because it is our sacred duty. When you or I want help, we often seek the intercession of the Saints in Heaven, do we not? Yes, and they help us. The intercessors for the souls in purgatory are not saints, but we the living on earth, the 'Church Militant.'
Rewards of serving purgatory: Incredible good karma! Profound protection and answer to prayer. Incredible graces and spiritual light because this is perhaps the greatest charity there is.
The urgency of helping purgatorial souls: Many are abandoned, forgotten, and getting no spirtual nourishment except the agonizingly long stretch of pain which is ahead of them. All but forgotten, it seems like hundreds of years. They cry bitterly. I have been given such souls from the arms of Our Blessed Lady. They did not want to leave her! But I promised them they would be given back to Her, and after I suffered and prayed for them, they were!
Ministering in dreams. The dreams are a tool but not the ministry itself. The dreams are a vision of facts - receiving a soul, gaging the improvement, and then seeing them ascend into Heaven in great rejoicing. A dream does not release a soul, it gives me information.
Greatest pain in purgatory as well as Hell: The separation from God. There is no greater pain anywhere, including the Earth. Separation from God says it all.
