Just in from Mass. Matthew’s account of the final judgement. Sheep on the right and goats on the left. Reward and punishment. Consequences.
Sometimes I say a prayer at Mass, I think it’s part of a prayer I heard used by the Redemptorists years ago at a Parish Mission. It includes words along these lines:
“When night time comes, may I look back on this day with no bitterness or regret in my heart because of anything I’ve said or done”
Consequences! Choices! “Choose life then and live”. In the choices made, may we allow others to live better.
