I find it amazing that Saint Francis of Assisi was not afraid of death. Inspiring, and he left a great legacy. As incredible and empowering as his words were, they are remembered today. In some Churches we have elderly persons who may be afraid. Then, in some places around the world a noble death was considered an entrance into their form of Heaven. Today, we have militaries which also speak of a death with very much honor.
I am glad to have put certain remarks far away from me in questioning what judgement means… but isn’t that close to an “all seeing eye” to walk without faith of being redeemed? We are redeemed, and one of my favorite sayings from Church is “rejoice and be glad!”
