“I have on occasion written about the important Apostolic Pardon or also Blessing, to be imparted to a person who is close to death.

The Apostolic Pardon imparts to a person who is properly disposed, please God through the last sacraments, a plenary indulgence (Enchiridion Indulgentiarum 28).  Hence, all temporal punishment due to sin is remitted to that person through the exercise of the “keys” by the Church and by the application of the merits of Christ and His saints to the person who is dying.”

“Friends, don’t be afraid to make yourselves and your concerns and your aspirations known to your pastors.   It could make a difference.   Be always kind and respectful, of course, as well as brief.”

Quoted from video:

“If God is all-good and all-loving, how could he send someone to hell?
At first glance, it seems that he would not. But God is infinitely higher than we are, and our finite minds can only grasp a tiny bit of his infinite mystery.
Therefore, we need to check our intuitions about what God would or would not do against what we know.
In particular, we need to check them against what God himself has told us in his word.
In this video, Jimmy Akin takes on the question of whether God would really send someone to hell and shows that we must reject the simple answer, “No, God would never do that.”
But he also shows that the matter isn’t as simple as saying that God “sends” people to hell.
Drawing on the teaching of Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, he reveals the real reason that people “go to hell”–and the fact that we can avoid this faith as long as we open ourselves to God’s love.
No matter what we’ve done, no matter how bad our sins, we can–as long as we live–always be saved if we turn back to God and embrace his love.”
