I once asked a priest about some issue. He said, "This is the rule. Keep the rule." "What if I cannot always do that rule?" I asked. "You burn," he answered. Some time later, I met another priest and asked him about the same issue. "This is the rule. Do the best you can." It was at the same rule. "Say what?" I asked. "What if I cannot live up to the rule, do I burn." "No," he said. "Jesus loves you if you just do the best you can. He came for the imperfect." I liked that. I am the imperfect. That is, I am human. Same rule but two different attitudes. It is called, "The Tone." Jesus did not come to change rules. He changed the tone. I don't mind being judged by a God of Love. Unless Maureen gets God's ear. Of course she would have to be in heaven. Then she is supposed to be loving, right? One can only hope.
