Why Shattered?

“Why should anyone be shattered by the thought of hell?

It is not compulsory for anyone to go there.

Those who do, do so by their own choice,

and against the will of God,

and they can only get into hell by defying and resisting all the work of Providence and grace.

It is their own will that takes them there, not God’s.”

Thomas Merton

The Seven Storey Mountain
