There is a quote from St. Jerome that says the following:
"Out of one hundred thousand people whose lives have always been bad, you will find barely one who is worthy of indulgence."
I have a few questions about this.
Does this mean that we have a 1 out of 100,000 chance that we are actually in a state of grace, even though we are not conscious of any mortal sin currently on our soul?
What is St. Jerome classifying as “people who’s lives have always been bad”?
What is meant by “worthy of indulgence”?
