QUOTATION: Judgement Day

Blessed John Henry Newman
Alas! How will you present yourselves before the judgement-seat of Christ, with the imperfect mixed feelings which now satisfy you, with a certain amount of faith, and trust, and fear of God’s judgements, but with nothing of that real delight in Him, in His attributes, in His Will, in His commandments, in His service, which saints possess in such fullness, and which alone can give the soul a comfortable title to the merits of His death and passion?

--Blessed John Henry Newman, “Purity and Love”
