Preparing for the judgment

In the moment of our death we will undergo a particular judgment which will decide whether we go to hell, purgatory or immediately to heaven. The judge will be Jesus himself, the Son of Man and his judgment will be just as well as merciful. In this meditation we consider how:

  • we should not care about how others judge us
  • pride colours our judgment about ourselves
  • in the particular judgment we will be judged on how we made use of the many gifts God has given us
  • we can prepare for the judgment by being very sincere in our prayer, our daily examination of conscience and in spiritual direction

Meditation on living by the truth

Many people these days wonder whether there is such a thing as objective truth: about God, life after death or morality. In this meditation we pray for the grace to discover the truth and to live in accordance with it, so that we may know ourselves and God and be with him forever in heaven.
