Note from Fr. Edwin:

We Christians who know this, we shall go to heaven when we breathe our last on earth, provided we are loyal to Christ and the faith he gave us, do not think enough about this.  It is the most important event that can ever happen to us and we do not meditate on it sufficiently.  The terrifying thought is that we could lose our inheritance, that we could exclude ourselves from that one place that can satisfy our every desire and find ourselves at the judgment seat unfit to merit our inheritance.

There have been such unfortunate Christians in the past; there will be others in the years to come and we could be among them.  Whatever about the nature of the fires of hell, there can be no doubt about the reality of the heart-burning regret and remorse which will keep gnawing at the Christian who will then realize what he has lost and irrevocably lost forever.

However, we can insure ourselves against such a dreadful calamity.  We can make sure that we shall be found worthy when our call to judgment comes: simply by trying always to be in God’s friendship.  Let each one of us ask himself how he would fare if he were called to judgment this moment.  Am I worthy of heaven as I stand here and now?  If there are black marks against me, do I have the means and the divine helps left to me by Christ to erase these marks.  If whole pages of my book of life have been smeared and spattered with ugly sins and dreadful offenses against God and neighbor, I can tear out all these pages and begin to write my life story anew.  While I am alive, God’s infinite mercy is available to me for the asking.  He cannot force his mercy on me against my will, but he is pleased to give it, if asked.

“God created me for incorruption,” that is, for the unending, happy life of heaven.  He wants me there.  He sent his Son on earth to endure humiliations and sufferings so that I would get there.  I would be ungrateful, thankless to God and so forgetful to my own best interest if I failed to get there.  God forbid that this should happen to me!
