People sometimes think, “Oh, those poor people. That could never happen here.”
And then it does.
The people in Russia who had the encounter with the bus-size exploding meteor, got up that day just like you did. Remember that video of the tsunami in Japan? HERE.
The End Of The World As We Know It… is coming for you.
One day, if the Lord doesn’t return first, and if you are not first struck by a meteor, a bus, or – in the case of members of the LCWR – a falling house, you are going to draw your last breath.
Your heart will cease to beat and you will die.
Are you ready to die today? Are you ready to go before your Creator and Judge?
A mortal sin kills the life of grace in the soul. You don’t want to go to your death and judgment – which could happen as you read this – with unconfessed mortal sins…. nay, rather sin.
GO TO CONFESSION.
There is nothing that we little finite mortals can do that is so bad that it cannot be, and will not be, forgiven by our infinite God who loves us.
His justice we are going to get whether we want it or not.
His mercy is there for the asking.
If you confess your sins to the priest – to whom Christ Himself through holy orders and the jurisdiction of the Church gives His own power to forgive all sins – they are not only forgiven, they are gone. You will have the memory of them. You will have to do penance for them. But they are taken from your soul and will not be held against you in your judgment.
Hell for those separated from God in sin. Heaven for those who die in God’s friendship and the state of grace.
Confess your sins. Confess ALL your sins. Confess them to the priest who has faculties to receive confessions. Confess your mortal sins, all of them in both kind (what they are) and number (how many times or some idea of frequency). Confess your sins soon. Confess your sins regularly. Confess your sins completely and with the sincerity born from the love of God, who is all good and deserving of all our love.
GO TO CONFESSION.
Death and judgment is a meteor out there with your name on it.
