At the Last Judgment – Mercy will be exalted over Condemnation for those who have lived a life of Mercy and Compassion – Part II

Saint Leo the Great

Continued from Wednesday, January 21, 2009 ... Since only the hardest heart would fail to be moved by any misery at all among those in distress, and since someone who has the means but does not help the afflicted must be considered as unjust as the one who crushes the weak, what hope remains for sinners who do not even show mercy “for the sake of obtaining it themselves”? …

Those who are not good to others are bad to themselves, and those who do not come to the aid of others as best they can do harm to their own souls. Rich and poor have one and the same nature. Among other aspects of human frailty belongs the fact that no boon of well-being remains safe, since everyone ought to fear what anyone at all is capable of falling into.

All human beings, regardless of who they happen to be, should come to terms with the fact that they have a mortal nature subject to change – and usually for the worse. In view of this shared condition, let them have sympathy toward their own kind.

Saint Leo the Great died in 461. He was Bishop of Rome and leader of the Church from 440 – 461. He is also a doctor of the Church.
