Is it more merciful to allow sinners to persist in sin, or to put an end to an age of sin through chastisement?

2 Maccabbees 6:16 He never withdraws his mercy from us. Although he disciplines us with misfortunes, he does not abandon his own people.

“Be not afraid, my children! Is it more merciful to allow sinners to persist in sin, or to put an end to an age of sin through chastisement? Know and believe that your Lord is merciful above all and seeks to call all sinners to righteousness. If they will not listen to the voice of God in his Church, they will listen to him in calamity. The children of this age persist in darkness. But the darkness can never vanquish the light. Light always triumphs. Therefore—rejoice! I say it again—rejoice! For your Lord is near and he comes to rule the world with justice and the peoples with fairness.”

O my Jesus—maranatha! May your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as in heaven. We place all souls, especially those you have given us to pray for, in the the Immaculate Heart of Mary—Daughter of the Father, Mother of the Son, Spouse of the Holy Spirit. Holy Trinity of love, we love you! Save souls!
