Avoiding Purgatory — Spiritual Checkup

by
Cardinal Stefan Wysznyski




   The Risen Lord     





Spiritual Checkup - Have I Failed To:




1. Respect everyone - Christ lives in everyone:
  • Be sensitive to others. They are your brothers and sisters.

2. Think well of everyone - think ill of no one:
  • Try to find something good even in the worst circumstances.

3. Always speak well of others:
  • Do not cast a slur on anyone.
  • Repair any harm resulting from an uttered word.
  • Do not provoke strife between people.

4. Speak to everyone in the language of love:
  • Do not raise your voice.
  • Do not swear.
  • Do not vex others.
  • Do not provoke tears.
  • Reassure others.
  • Show a kind heart.

5. Forgive everyone everything:
  • Do not hold grudges.
  • Always be the first to extend your hand a sign of reconciliation.

6. Act always to your neighbor's advantage:
  • Do good things to others, as you would like them done to you.
  • Never give a thought to what others owe you, but always to what you owe them.

7. Be actively compassionate in time of suffering:
  • Be quick to offer consolation, council, assistance, kindness.

8. Work conscientiously:
  • Others benefit from the fruits of your labor, just as you benefit from the labors of others.

9. Be active in your community:
  • Be open to the poor and the sick.
  • Share your goods.
  • Try to see the needs of those around you.

10. Pray for everyone, even your enemies.
