A Haunting Thought About Small and Great Penances

The suffering the souls in purgatory undergo for the small sins that they have is far greater than even the most severe fasts and penances people undertake in this life during Great Lent to repent of great sins. Let that be an image haunting us and motivating us to repent and go to confession. Even the smallest sins causes such immense suffering in purgatory. A grave sin means it's all over-forever. Go to confession while there's still time for you know not the day nor the hour. It doesn't matter when the world is going to end, it only matters when your world is going to end. Go to confession. Confession removes all the suffering of the next life.
