    2 comments: 1) I heard that story re St. Ignatius of Loyola, exc. he said "I would finish this game." 2) Pope Francis has been quoted as saying there is no such thing eternal condemnation, at the end there will be only the merciful Jesus, and everything will be saved - everything. When quoting Jesus' words, he customarily omits anything implying punishment for sin or final separation from God. But perhaps he only means to emphasize the good?
