SHORT COMMUNICATIONS 31.
We Are Not Immortal
Far to many of us mortals live our lives as if we are immortal. We go through the various stages of our lives as if we are going to live forever. And as we do this, we give no thought to what is in store for us at the moment we leave our earthly life, when our mortality arrives. Maybe this communications will help us to adjust our thinking.
At the moment we leave this life, it is too late to change anything we did her during our lifetime. Our life’s record is etched in eternity. Nothing has been lost in time. Every thought, word, and deed is there to be reviewed during our life-review. It will be like we are watching a video with nothing censored or omitted. And then comes the consequences of our thoughts, words, and deeds.
The consequences stemming from our life here are three-fold, and two are permanent and one is temporary. They are:
1. HEAVEN -permanent- die in the friendship of the Lord, unimaginably happy and beautiful, peaceful, our real home, the most delightful music, with all our family members, the Blessed Virgin, saints, God. Only few people go directly to heaven. It is possible under certain conditions. (See communications 20 and 22)
2. PURGATORY -temporary- those who die in the friendship of the Lord but need be perfected in order to enter heaven, unquenchable fire, but less intense than hell, no quarrelling or fighting, seven degrees of fire and suffering. The main suffering is the separation from God. We most pray for these souls. They pray for us when they reach have Purgatory souls suffer, but the peace and the knowledge they enjoy is because one day they will see God in heaven. However some souls will remain in purgatory until the end of the world.
3. HELL -permanent- those who die outside the Lord’s friendship end up here for all eternity, unimaginable suffering, 2000 degrees temperature, people screaming, fighting, tortured by demons, suffering due to unrepented mortal ins. Souls are very ugly, cruel, and horrific. Satan and his demon helpers live there.
(See communication 19, for more in depth information.)
Knowing the fact that we are mere mortals, and sooner or later we shall have to leave here and give an accounting of our life and how we are going to spend our eternity, we should start each day as fallows:
1. Thank God for a new day and ask Him graces, guidances, protection, and help to face the day as sinless as possible and to serve Him.
2. Say the Morning Offering: O Jesus, through the immaculate heart of Mary, I offer You all my prayers, works and sufferings of this day, for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy sacrifice of the Mass, throughout the world, in reparation for all my sins, for the intentions of all our associates, and in particular for the Pope’s intentions. Amen.
3. Then go forth planning to be as sinless as possible, using your abilities and talents for good purposes and for others, thanking God often. (The more we thank God the more graces and helps we get from Him.)
4. At the end of each day thank God a final time and say the Act of Contrition. O my God, I am heartily sorry for offending Thee, and I detest all my sins and dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell, but most off all because I have offended Thee, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve sin no more and to avoid all occasions of sin. Amen.
Our main goal in life should be to live such o that bypasses Purgatory. That way the chance of ending up in Hell will be avoided. And sooner rather than later we´ll reach our main goal-Heaven- where we will be immortal, and happily so.
