An Exhortation of Our Holy Father Francis

O dearly beloved brothers and children ever-blessed. listen to me, listen to the voice of your Father: Great things have we promised, greater things have been promised us; Let us observe the former, and yearn for the later. Pleasure is brief; punishment is eternal. Short the suffering, eternal the glory. Many are called, few are chosen; everyone will be rewarded according to his merit. (Amen) (Cf. Thomas of Celano, The Remembrance of the Desire of a Soul)
