Dear Friend in the Lord,
“The Final Judgment” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that “The Kingdom of Heaven” belongs to those who believe and live His Gospel, while those who are against God and His Church’s Teachings, have freely chosen, the “eternal sufferings of hell.” Ponder on, “To have true wisdom is to prepare to live with God eternally, in heaven.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to the crowds: ‘The kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls; when he finds one of great value he goes and sells everything he owns and buys it.
‘Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet that is cast in the sea and brings in a haul of all kinds of fish. When it is full, the fishermen bring it ashore; then, sitting down, they collect the good ones in baskets and throw away those that are no use. This is how it will be at the end of time: the angels will appear and separate the wicked from the upright, to throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.’
