So you expect to get redemption on the nod! You are fortunate.

The Catholic Answers

I am. And not a soul will be saved who does not owe it to the death of Christ on the cross, and who will not admit that this was a purely free and gratuitous gift wholly undeserved by men. Mass merely applies the satisfactory value of Christ’s death to my soul. Meantime, those who deny purgatory and the necessity of expiation wish to obtain salvation much more “on the nod,” as you call it, than Catholics.
