It was plainly shown to me that Peter was cast down out of heaven. Since that time I heard nothing about Peter until today, when I was told that now more souls than ever before are coming and adoring Peter, entreating him to let them into Heaven. The reason may be that something has just been revealed to those called the Jesuits, to the effect that Peter had been let down out of heaven, and that they can no longer approach him, as souls just arriving from the world did previously. Whether there is another reason, I do not yet know.

But that Peter their God [was cast] from heaven (whether he is to be restored, I do not yet know), this I do know for certain. And that he was deprived of his key, that is, his privilege, and now walks about like a poor spirit, this I can assure you with certainty. For he has very often asked me to pour out prayers for him before Jesus Christ, but this I was not allowed to do. I could tell much more about this if this were the place for it; but at some other point, if God the Christ sees fit, more will come.
