THIS WEEK'S CATECHESIS SUMMARY
What I believe helps me know what I am and how I am to live: We pray, "I believe that He will come to judge the living and the dead." Awareness of that besides our love and gratitude to Him ? might lead us to take our faith seriously; here too, other Christians seem to do that more than do we. An old heresy returns from time to time saying in effect, ?God is so good, He won?t let anyone suffer the loss of Him forever.? That is a nice thought, it compliments God's great mercy, but it is not what He tells us in the Gospels in His often-repeated message: Be prepared. An ongoing awareness of our mortality is not a dark way to live, if we believe, as we claim, in the possibility of a joyous afterlife, His promise to those who freely say, then live, a "Yes" to His "Follow Me." Choosing to live a "No" to His offer can have everlasting negative consequences.
