It seems that some people are content with aiming for purgatory as their after-death temporary resting place. Having a purgatorial attitude is one of acceptance of one’s sinful nature without the resolve of aiming for holiness here in this world.
Allowing yourself to settle for purgatory can be a dangerous strategy. If you aim for purgatory and you miss, you wind up in the only other eternal destination for unrepentant sinners…hell. This is a bad plan, indeed.
We are Catholic. We are called to live a holy life according to the teachings of Holy Mother Church. We are called to be baptized, confess our sins sacramentally, receive Our Lord in Holy Communion worthily, and live a life pleasing to God according to His will. Aim high. Always aim for heaven.
Ponder: What changes will you make in your life to aim for heaven?
Reflect: Mark 9:43-45
Pray: Dear Lord, I want to please you always and be with you forever in heaven. Give me the strength and courage to follow your ways daily.
