Thanks for the post but I don’t understand exactly the doctrines of the Catholic church, being the Protestant Christian that I am.

A priest in my city said this in his homily from last week’s mass: “....if I get to heaven”.

Thist statement has greatly troubled a Catholic friend of mine who was at that service.

She asked another Catholic friend about this statement....basicaly wondering how could a Priest say that? i.e. He doesn’t believe he IS DEFINITELY going to heaven?

The other friend talked about mortal sins and what the Catholic church believes about that....

I would like any and all Catholics here who would like to offer an explanation for this Priest’s comments.

Does it mean, is it true, that Catholic Christians are not assured of their eternal life with Jesus Christ in heaven immediately after they die...and if not ....why not and when will they receive this assurance of eternal life in heaven with Jesus Christ?

Thanks for the exlanations. Will check back in tomorrow late.

"Since Your Majesty and Your Lordships desire a simple reply, I will answer.

Unless I am convinced by Scripture and by plain reason, and not by Popes and councils who have so often contradicted themselves, my conscience is captive to the word of God. To go against conscience is neither right nor safe.

I cannot, and I will not recant. Here I stand. I can do no other.

God help me."
- Martin Luther, from the Eric Till film Luther
