Today is also the Memorial of St. Lucy, patron saint to cure blindness and all other eye problems. It is my prayer today that spiritually we'll always have the clear vision to see the beauty and love of God, our proper place and role in this life, what's good and what's bad for us, and that God alone is our bright hope for eternal life.
Aim for full union with God through the Holy Eucharist in this life, then you may bypass purgatory altogether. It's perfectly all right to wish to skip purgatory if it's for the glory of God. (On the other hand, we must be willing to go to purgatory to remain as long as God wishes.)
