RISE OR FALL

***

Either rise or fall

Weighed down by sin? Then you fall

Purified? You rise

***

NOTE: Our souls find their proper place in ultimate reality. Weighed down by sin? The soul falls into the Inferno. Weighed down by sin, but sincerely repented in life? Soul goes to the Mountain of Purgatory temporarily. Purged of sin? Soul rises to Paradise.
