May God have Mercy on Us

There was a story about a man who committed suicide who had it televised on BBC. His end is very striking as it compares to one of the Parables of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Millionaire hotelier Peter Smedley, 71, was filmed swallowing a lethal dose of the barbiturate Nembutal - helped down with a praline chocolate.
He gasps for breath. Within a minute his face turns red and he chokes as he pleads for water.

Luke Chapter 16

19 There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen; and feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And there was a certain beggar, named Lazarus, who lay at his gate, full of sores, 21 Desiring to be filled with the crumbs that fell from the rich man's table, and no one did give him; moreover the dogs came, and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. And the rich man also died: and he was buried in hell. 23 And lifting up his eyes when he was in torments, he saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom: 24 And he cried, and said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, to cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame. 25 And Abraham said to him: Son, remember that thou didst receive good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazareth evil things, but now he is comforted; and thou art tormented.

May the Lord have Mercy on us especially those who are in most need.

O My Jesus Forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell lead all souls to heaven especially those in most need of they mercy.
