This Week in Catholic Liturgy: No Doesn't Mean Yes

People who, late in life, commit to the Gospel (or at least repent for not having done so) are better off than those who fall away after initial enthusiasm.  God, knowing His creatures' weakness, is grateful for what He gets; yet when faced with the Rude Awakening, once-quiet ingrates will soon say, "The Lord's ways are not fair!"  There is nothing wrong with a high standard for human beings, whose greatness consists in the ability and command to love with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
