St. Catherine of Genoa: The 'Fire' of Purgatory

"The 'fire' of purgatory is God's love 'burning' the soul
so that, at last, the soul is wholly aflame.
It is the pain of wanting to be made totally worthy
of One who is seen as infinitely lovable,
the pain of desire for union that is now absolutely assured,
but not yet fully tasted."

~ St. Catherine of Genoa ~
