Things put into perspective

With academic work getting rather trying at the moment, it was possibly providential that I served a Requiem Mass today. Actually in the last few months, I have ended up at Requiem Masses (without meaning) too, and have found them highly helpful in reminding me that however stressful we might find our everyday concerns, there are things to be slightly more concerned about, such as continuing to know, love, and serve God with the time we have left. It's rather disconcerting to consider how when we will go before God, we might find that our priorities were mistakenly arranged.

How encouraging given this then, that God is always willing to have souls return to Him in spite of anything they might done.
