Beautiful to see..

Yes, I take the quote to mean that the more remorseful I am for my sins, etc, the more "wealth" I stack up for myself in heaven.

It's good to hear.. thank you odhiabmo..

It's good to remember the Desert Fathers and the Gift of Tears..

'Abba Isaac related the following: "One one occasion I was sitting near Abba Poimen and I saw him fall into ecstasy and lamentation. Since I had boldness before him, I made a prostration to him and implored him saying: "Tell me, where were you?" When I pressed him, he replied, "In my mind, I was beside the Cross of the Savior, where the Holy Theotokos Mary stood and wept, and I wished that I could always weep that way (as did the Theotokos for her Crucified Son)."'

"It occurred to me that Our Lord loves to hear the prayers of the little as much as the great, the poor as much as the rich and that He gives Himself to each of us without distinction."
Saint Bernadette in a letter to Pope Pius IX

He who serves God willingly is heard;
his petition reaches the heavens.
The prayer of the humble pierces the clouds;
it does not rest till it reaches it's goal
nor will it withdraw till the Most High responds,
judges justly and affirms the right.
Sirach 35:16-18

So our Lord's sheep will finally reach their grazing ground where all who follow Him in simplicity of heart will feed on the green pastures of eternity. These pastures are the spiritual joys of heaven. There the elect look upon the face of God with unclouded vision and feast at the banquet of life for ever more.
Pope St. Gregory the Great (excerpt of a homily)

'Nor can it be doubted, that it is more consonant with the order of nature that men should bear rule over women, than women over men. It is with this principle in view that the apostle says, "The head of the woman is the man;" and, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands." So also the Apostle Peter writes: "Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord."'
