Heaven Or Hell


 Will more people go to heaven or hell upon their death?


The greatest homily ever preached on the salvation of souls was given by St. Leonard of Port Maurice. His homily is called: "The Little Number of Those Who Are Saved" http://www.olrl.org/snt_docs/fewness.shtml

Here is a quote from his famous sermon: 'And if the damned are "as numerous as the sand in the sea," the saved are "as numerous at the stars of heaven," that is, both the one and the other are countless, although in very different proportions.'

Saint Leonard of Port Maurice, O.F.M., was an Italian Franciscan preacher and ascetic writer. He died in the friary of St. Bonaventure,  in Rome, the 26 November 1751.

St Alphonsus Liguori called Leonard "the great missionary of the 18th century". A great preacher, St Leonard spent over forty years preaching retreats, Lenten sermons and parish missions throughout Italy. His missions lasted 15 to 18 days, and he often stayed an additional week to hear confessions.

St Leonard founded many pious societies and confraternities, and exerted himself to spread devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the perpetual adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. He was among the few to insist that the concept of the Immaculate Conception of Mary be defined as a dogma of the faith before it was defined.

According to Dr Ralph Martin, the reason most Catholics don't evangelize is because they don't know what the Church or the Bible teach about salvation.  Many Catholics believe in the heresy of 'universal salvation.'
