Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell – Eshatological Musings

Georges Bernanos

Georges Bernanos

“There are brand-new moralities, but nothing can make sin new.” 

 ***

“…don’t forget that sin rarely enters into us by force.  It comes in by trickery, slips in like air.  It has no shape, color, or smell of its own, but it takes on the ones it wants.  It wears us out from inside.  For all the wretches it eats alive and whose cries frighten us to death, how many others are already cold, not even dead, but whited sepulchers? Our Lord told us, and in what words!  The enemy of men steals everything from us, even death, then flees, laughing.”
