Judgement Day

In an old email to an elderly man

I read the following

Your words on Judgement Day

frighten me a little

but I know how merciful Jesus is

and I have nothing to fear

God is not going to judge us

We are going to judge ourselves

We will see ourselves clearly as we are

and we will know where we should go

Anyway, that is not really important

since we can trust in the mercy of God

If that is so, does that mean we need not bother?

I think we ought not try to fool ourselves

Undoubtedly God is always merciful

He loves us so much, so much indeed  

Sinners we are, and sinners we continue to fall again and again

We remember that God is also just

But let us take heart

The Word of God in the letter of St John tells us

Perfect love casts out all fear

That is the point to make for us, is it not?

Make love your vocation and all will be well!
