“it would be better to just go to heaven…”

The other day we were listening to Catholic radio in the van, and heard the story if a man who came back to life when a priest visited him. The priest had been called to the hospital, but arrived minutes after the old man was pronounced dead. Wanting to see if my girls had paid attention, I asked them if they heard, and retold the story. While my oldest had her jaw dropping to the floor, my younger daughter was less impressed by the miracle. In her words, “It would be better for him to just go to heaven and not have the chance to do anything bad anymore.”

How right you are, my dear, if only we are doing enough good to begin with.
