...Seriously reflect how many venial sins one who is careless about her eternal salvation commits in one day.  How many minutes does she offer up to God?  Does she think of Him seriously at all?  Well, there are 365 days in one year, and if there are many such years, that person dies charged with a multitude of venial sins which have not been blotted out because she has not even thought of them.

When such a soul appears before God to be judged there is scarcely a spark of love left in that soul when she comes to render an account of her life to Him who demands it back from her.  Such all but sterile lives have to be begun all over again, when they reach this place of expiation  Lives lived without love for God will have to be atoned for here in Purgatory with intense sufferings.  Whilst on earth, they did not profit by the mercy of God, but lived merely for the sake of the body.  Now to regain their first splendor, they have to make satisfaction to the last farthing.  That is what happens to indifferent souls.  For souls of greater guilt, it is far worse...
