The Great Day of Judgment

fr-wegner-christmas-message460b

Today is the final Sunday in the Liturgical Year, the Last Sunday After Pentecost, wherein we meditate upon our own Particular Judgment, as well as the General Judgment.  My SSPX Parish had the great honor of welcoming this morning, Fr. Jurgen Wegner, the SSPX District Superior, who gave an excellent sermon on this topic. Simple but powerful, all the same.  Father captures our attention with his devotion to the Church and the salvation of souls, encourages us to meditate on our own Judgment, the horror of our sins and the reality of the General Judgment, where all our great and small sins will be revealed to the world. God bless Fr. Wegner!

“Oh, what a day that will be, and how great when it comes, dearest brethren! When the Lord begins to survey His people and to recognize by examining with divine knowledge the merits of each individual! To cast into hell evildoers, and to condemn our persecutors to the eternal fire and punishing flame! And indeed, to present to us the reward of faith and devotion! What will be that glory, and how great the joy of being admitted to the sight of God! To be so honored as to receive the joy of eternal light and salvation in the presence of Christ the Lord, your God! To greet Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the patriarchs, apostles, prophets, and martyrs! To rejoice with the just and with the friends of God in the Kingdom of heaven, in the delight of the immortality that will be given! To receive there what eye has not seen nor ear heard, what has entered into the heart of man!”   ~St. Cyprian of Carthage, 253 A.D.
