Yes, I remember this from St. Faustina's Diary. I believe she was doing needle work and she asked for as many stitches she was doing that Jesus would release that many souls from Purgatory. St. Faustina -pray for us! I too continue praying the Novena of Abandonment and it truly does help us to trust as does the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. There is a wonderful website with Fr. Dolindo's prayers and writings: dolindo.org. You may want to read some of them. Also, the Novena on the website is a bit different from the one we have been praying. It seems that someone has shortened it and made it easier for others. It's a beautiful Novena - thank you, Jesus!
