Everyone is redeemed. Some are saved. No one is predestined to hell, though many go there, including the son of perdition, Judas. There are those who are predestined to heaven.
This is not a matter of God taking away our free will or affirming the non-sequitur logic that just because God knows if we will cooperate with His grace or not, that this takes away our free will. No.
Some of the saints have spoken about signs of predestination, such as saying the rosary. I suppose that it is terribly, horrifically presumptuous, but I’m thinking that someone who gives flowers to Mary Immaculate with sincerity just may be predestined. The sincerity part, which necessitates grace, is the catch, of course. I could give flowers to Jesus’ good mom all day, everyday, and still be on my way to h, e, double toothpicks, the unspeakable place or horror and grinding of teeth.
Confession, also with simplicity, sincerity, humility, hope, thanksgiving for God’s gracious mercy, is perhaps THE sign of predestination. Jesus is good and kind. He would certainly love that we, in His grace, would sincerely give flowers, such as roses (ROSE-ary), to His good mom. And He would love that we do this in heaven. Confession is the way to go, but with humility, simplicity, sincerity, hope, thanksgiving for God’s gracious mercy.
Don’t be afraid. Don’t worry. Don’t be downcast. God’s loves happy saints. Confession makes one joyful as the day is long, however much anything is weighing on us.
