Saint Bede: “The door of the heavenly kingdom is open to all; but the quality of men’s merits will admit one man and reject another. How wretched must it be for a man to be shut from the glory of the saints and to be consigned with the devil to eternal flames!”
Pope Eugene IV: “It is also necessary for salvation to believe faithfully the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. The right faith, therefore, is that we believe and confess that our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, is God and man… At His coming all shall rise again with their bodies, and shall give an account of their own deeds. Those who have done good shall go into eternal life, but those who have done evil shall go into eternal fire.” (Council of Florence, Athanasian Creed)
