A Message from Father Walter

YOU CAN GO TO HELL, EVEN IF YOU DID NOT DO ANYTHING BAD

heaven-or-hellIt gets me worried to read today’s gospel, where the rich man, who was enjoying his life, ended up in hell. He actually did not do anything bad, he was only enjoying the fruits of his labors.

How come then, he ended up in hell? He must have been a good guy, because he was thinking about his brothers on earth and was asking Abraham to send someone to warn them about their risk to end up in the same terrible place! But not even that was granted him! So why did he end up in hell? Not because he did something bad, but because he DID NOT DO SOMETHING GOOD!

Every day he was witnessing the need of the poor Lazarus, and he did not do a thing for him. Even the dogs were better off then that poor Lazzarus; those dogs were even better than their owner, because at least they were licking the soars of the poor beggar.

WHAT ABOUT US? Probably we are good people, doing nothing bad, but are we doing SOMETHING GOOD?
