1237. The evil also, at the point of death, may consider worldly matters and their own possessions as unimportant, and think only of things eternal. But this happens when they despair of life, when such a person sees no more hope of living. Then one may also speak devoutly, and despise the things of the world, although this is very rarely the case with those who are led by self-love.
