When I was young I heard a story,
of a soul God sent to Purgatory!
So terrible was his sin,
it could never be forgiven!
Forbidden from ever entering Heaven,
he was condemned to Purgatory and forsaken!
After watching Azrael suffer many years,
God's Angels were brought to tears!
They begged God to set his soul free,
so in Heaven he could be!
But ignored by God their request,
they took upon themselves a quest!
They went down into Purgatory,
and lifted his soul to Heaven in glory!
When God asked them why they did this,
they said he had suffered enough in Abyss!
God combined all the Angels’ innocence,
and they outweighed all Azrael’s sins!
Finally God said he agreed,
and Azrael’s soul would remain free!
God declared all Azrael’s sins forgiven,
and welcomed him into Heaven!
I was told this story by a Catholic Nun,
and now I tell it to you everyone!
