A Proof of Purgatory

A certain Fr. Panzini, former Abbot Olivetano of Mantua. In 1731 he appeared to Blessed Clara Isabella Fornari, abbess of the Poor Clares of the Monastery of St. Francis in Todi. He appeared to her on November 1, 1731 (All Saints Day) and said he was suffering in Purgatory. To prove his claim, he touched his flaming hand to her table and etched a burning cross in it too. He also touched her sleeve and left scorches and bloodstains.


This table is still preserved in the Purgatory Museum in Rome
