The Kingdom…

“No matter what the many fates of humans are on earth, no matter what schemes and obstacles Satan and the godless prepare and no matter how great the apostasy will be in the last times from the love of Christ, the kingdom of Christ will be filled unconditionally. Or did He who told us to calculate whether we can finish a tower before we start building it, did He not calculate how He would fulfill his kingdom? The Church is His body. What would anybody be like without all of its parts, even the smallest parts and the tiniest cells? This is why the Lord will also cleanse and restore many repentant sinners so that they may be worthily called His brides. But repentance is only the beginning of one’s labor in acquiring God’s grace.”
