Chapter 3: Final Judgement
Just like Hell, Final Judgement is something we all do not want to think about. This, too, fills us with fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. These thoughts can be something that causes us to avoid meditating on our final judgment. This could be a tool that Satan uses to stop us from being prepared for what's to come next.
During your particular judgement, all your sins will be brought to light. Are there any sins in particular that you are ashamed to have brought to light?
Have you confessed these sins already on earth, or are you holding them back out of fear?
Challenge for the Week
Find a plenary or partial indulgence that you can do for either yourself or a loved one (who has passed away) this week.
Prayer for the Week:
Jesus, help me to contemplate the ways in which I will face you on judgment day. Help it to be something that I have prepared for and something that I am ready to face with joy.

Mediation on DEATH by Tan Books( Book of the Year
By Thomas A Kempis
Translated by Fr Robert Nixon OSB
Hell is something we naturally do not want to think about. This is a trick of the devil. You cannot prepare for something you do not think about. In Hell, there is the pain of fire without the light to illuminate the surroundings, and at the same time, bitter cold with warmth of the fire. The reality of Hell is something we ought to bring to prayer.
How, then, would it change our attitude towards those disordered desires if we thought of them for what they truly were: temptations from the devil that take us away from the goods God has placed into our lives?
Challenge for the Week
Pray for those who you know living in a state of mortal sin.
Pray that God gives them the courage to live their lives in a way that glorifies Him.
Prayer for the Week
Jesus, help me to not overlook the ways that I have fallen short of your glory. Grant me a spirit of repentance to help me face moments of temptation in the future.

Meditation on Death by Thomas A Kepmis tranlated by Fr Nixon, OSB Published by Tan Books
Most people think that they have more time than they really do. We often qualify someone's death as "gone too soon." There is a reason that people often leave important things until later, as the author noted, which is why deathbed confessions take place.
Do you feel like you procrastinate in your spiritual life?
What are some things that you can do to become more aware of the reality and unknown timing of death and the things you should not leave "until later"?
Challenge for the Week
Go to confession and pray (after your penance of course) for a firm resolve to leave each day knowing that God could choose to bring you home at any moment.

Before you start reading the book, take a moment and think about how your views regarding death now.
Does it scare you or encourage you to live better on earth?
Challenge of the week:
Spend some time in mental prayer and ask God to give you grace to have a proper view of life, death, and eternity. Pay attention to the emotions that you feel when you are in prayer.
Pay attention to how your views and these emotions change throughout this series.
