Comfort at Life’s End

A certain Dr. Creutzenach celebrated many masses, fasted often, even built a house for repentant sinners where they could be fed without resorting to sin and disgrace on account of their poverty. When he was about to die, he reflected on one good work after the other, hoping to be comforted thereby, but it was no use. At last he said, “Well if nothing else will help, this will: Have mercy upon me, O Lord God, for the sake of Your dearest Son Jesus Christ!” Then his heart found peace.
