  1. So true yet…”I have born your sins…..tetalestai……(paid in full) It is finished”—Jesus

    and…..”Nobody bats a thousand”—some baseball guy, maybe Yogi Bera lol!


  2. All this time I never really knew the true definition of Purgatory…I thought is was a (non cuss) 9 letter word for hell…well wrong I was. So tis my vision of Purgatory has been disrupted, it appears I must start from scratch.


  3. Definitely now rather than later. I always hated the teaching on Purgatory as a child. Almost as terrifying as hell although depicting justice and mercy combined. I was petrified at the idea of being locked there waiting till atonement was done, watching others go on ahead. Yet glad I wasn’t going the other way! It’s not really taught any more. Hope that means God’s had a rethink. 😉 You have caught here for me that sense of live better, make amends, don’t risk it. Strangely enough, I have less fear now. The O.T. god was vengeful and taught so fiercely until my late primary school years. The merciful Jesus was such a relief when new loving teaching became the norm.
    Fabulous poem, Paul. Got my brain going anyway as you can see. 🙂 x


  4. I would almost give anything to be allowed one moment for each occasion of unloving behavior, to go back, and if not “do things right”, then apologize sincerely. Since that’s not an option–I have to trust in my redemption through Christ.
