Principles and Practices - October 30

Who Go To Heaven?

Those go to heaven who are substantially good, whose heart is good and right before the Lord. From such men the evil flakes off as life advances; and the rest is done in Purgatory. There is an inner substance and permanent core of goodness about one who is ultimately to save his soul.
