Too Little, Too Late

This evening's gospel was the parable of the servant who owed 10,000 talents. In his homily, Father Valentine remarked that the souls in hell can never repay the debt they owe our heavenly Father, at which point an enraged young man stormed out of Mass, tearing up his worship aid and bulletin as he went.

Was he outraged at the suggestion that our actions in this life have eternal consequences? Was he offended at the suggestion that he himself had to forgive or face the consequences? I wanted to ask him, and hear what he had to say, and reason with him, but I was too slow. It took me a few minutes to get myself out of the pew and after him, and by then he was long gone.
