You know how hospitals have priests on call for when someone's going to die? What is the purpose of that? A person could just screw around their whole life, sin beyond belief, get shot or something and then right when they're about to die in a hospital, have the priest cleanse them or whatever and then they'll supposidly go up to heaven? Is that what it's for? Isn't that's pretty much telling people, don't bother being a good catholic, you'll go up to heaven anyway? Or, is that even the point of it?

Gosh, what if he wants to accept Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior at the moment of death?

It's odd how some believe that you can make this profession and be saved once and for all, regardless of how you live your life, but then profess to be scandalized by the offering of the sacraments in the face of death. stunning.

You might want to review Matthew 20:1-15 and Ezechiel 3:18-21 for a refresher on God's generosity and justice.

“therefore is my people led away captive, because they have not knowledge … therefore hath hell enlarged her mouth without any bounds” (Is 5:13-14).

But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved. (Mt 24:13)
