Heaven and Hell
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved.” At the end of the world, the earth will be destroyed by fire. The sound of the trumpet will be so solemn that it will cause the earth to tremble. “Arise ye dead, come to the judgment.” The devils and the lost souls will shrink in despair and say, “How can we possibly endure the shame.” “The souls of the just will re-unite with their bodies: ‘Blessed be thou my chosen companion, who has been so faithful to me. Blessed be my senses and all thy members, for they have ever abstained from evil.’ And the body will reply, ‘Be thou rather blessed, O dearest soul, for it was by thy instigation I did so, and thou didst incite me to all that was good. It is to thee that my present happiness, therefore I praise and magnify thee, and I will praise and magnify thee for all…

Final Judgement
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved.” Mt. At the end of the world, the earth will be destroyed by fire. II The sound of the trumpet will be so solemn that it will cause the earth to tremble. “Arise ye dead, come to the judgment.” The devils and the lost souls will shrink in despair and say, “How can we possibly endure the shame.” “The souls of the just will re-unite with their bodies: ‘Blessed be thou my chosen companion, who has been so faithful to me.

Heaven
The Church teaches as a doctrine of faith, defined by Benedict XII: "The souls of all the saints are in heaven before the resurrection of the body and the general judgment. They see the divine essence by a vision which is intuitive and facial, without the intermediation of any creature in that view. By this vision they enjoy the divine essence, they are truly blessed, they have eternal life and repose." St. Thomas defines the object of beatitude as follows: "It is that perfect good which completely satiates the desire of the rational being." [549] He continues thus: "Only the uncreated and infinite good can satisfy fully the desire of a creature which conceives universal good." All theologians admit that subjective beatitude consists in a vital union with God through the higher faculties, intelligence and will, that is, in the beatific vision and love which follows it. P. 218 Essential beatitude, therefore, consists in the immediate vision of God, and is consummated in the love which…

Purgatory
Purgatory: “The Council (Trent) affirms the necessity of satisfaction for sins committed after baptism: satisfaction in the form of fasting, of almsgiving, of prayer, and of other exercises of the spiritual life. These satisfactions are not meant for the eternal punishment, which was remitted by the sacrament of penance or by the desire of the sacrament, but for the remission of temporal punishment, which is not always remitted entirely, as it is in baptism.” “The doctrine of purgatory is one of wisdom and consolation. It emphasizes the sanctity and majesty of God, since nothing soiled can appear before Him. It fortifies our sense of justice. It manifests the disorder, often unperceived, of venial faults. Faith in purgatory purifies us here on earth.” “Suffering in purgatory is greater than all suffering on earth. Such is the doctrine of tradition, supported by theological reasoning. Tradition is expressed by St. Augustine: "That fire will be more painful than anything man…

Judgement
Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange says in his book, Life Everlasting: “This universal judgment is presented as the work of Christ, above all in the great discourse on the end of the world, as preserved by the three Evangelists. [145] ‘When the Son of man comes in His glory and all His angels with Him, then shall He sit on the seat of His majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before Him, and He shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats.’ The Catechism of the Council of Trent [169] says in substance: Divine justice wills that the good recover their reputation, often attacked by the wicked who triumph. Further, the body, as well as the soul, must receive the punishment or the reward which it merits. Hence the general judgement must follow the general resurrection. This judgement will oblige all men to render homage to the justice of God and to His providence. Finally, it is fitting that this judgement be carried on by…

Death
Death is the most important time of our life for upon it depends our eternal life either in heaven or hell. We want to make sure that we have repented of our all our mortal sins for those in mortal sin who die in final impenitence will be lost in hell for all eternity. The gift of final perseverance cannot be merited and is defined: that gift which makes the moment of death coincide with the state of grace, either continued or restored. Fr. Lagrange tells us: “St. Augustine adds that this gift is not given to us according to our merits, but according to the will of God, a will very secret, very wise, very beneficent. Only to God does it belong to give it, since He alone determines the end of our life. But this gift, even if it cannot be merited, can be obtained by humble supplication.” Fr. Lagrange tells us of God’s loving concern for the salvation of all souls: “If the sinner does not resist this last appeal, he will be led from grace to grace, even to that of conversion. The…

The Immensity of the Soul
As the title tells us this theological study is all about "life everlasting" which is the final end of man in this life. First, he has to realise that his happiness in this life can never be realised as he has been made for God. No earthly good can satisfy man! God has made man so that man can only be happy with in the love of God. This will be perfected when man sees God face to face. Here on earth, it is a struggle for man to know God. This is why he needs to realise that he must deny himself and live only for God. God in His great love for man gives man the supernatural help of sanctifying grace and the infused virtues of faith, hope and charity to make it easier for man to overcome any disordered love in his life. God also uses the sufferings of life to purify the soul and make it realise that it was not made for happiness here in this life. St. John of the Cross says: "God Himself must set his hand to the work and purify the soul in His own dark fires." Only when man hates himself…

The Little Number Who Are Saved 02
St. Leonard of Port Maurice who was a great preacher in Italy in the 18th century speaks out boldly about how few there are that will be saved. He says this because those who will be damned want to be damned; "Thy damnation comes from thee!" Many do not feel that there is a hell and consequently do not keep God's Commandments or the Natural Law. As he says, "You are damned because you want to be damned." Conversely, we can say that we will be saved if we want to be saved. God does not wish the death of the sinner but that he live. This is why Jesus died on the Cross to show His great love for men. This is why he established His Church to give all the necessary graces for salvation. At first, St. Leonard sounds very pessimistic on saying that number of damned is less than the number who are saved, but he does this to wake people up to the reality that they need to do all that can to save their souls and the souls of others.

The Little Number Who Are Saved 01
St.Leonard of Port Maurice treatise, "The Little Number of Those Who Are Saved," was a sermon that he gave during the eighteenth century to wake souls up to the reality that many souls will not be saved. In face, the greater number of souls will be damned as proven by the words of Jesus Christ, the teaching of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church and learned theologians throughout history. So many souls do not believe in sin and commit sin after sin. So many souls do not keep the Commandments especially those related to marriage. So many souls practice immoral acts in their marriage by not having the children that God wants to give them. If St. Leonard's were true in his day, what can we say of our day when the world has changed so much in the practice of the faith where barely 10% of the Church go to Church on Sunday. We need to listen to these truth words of St. Leonard so that many souls can be saved. We need to keep the words of Jesus in our mind: "What does it profit a man to…

The Friends of the Cross 02
St. Louis reminds the "Friends of the Cross" of the many witnesses in the past who have carried their crosses: "My dear Friends of the Cross, see before you a great cloud of witnesses who, without saying a word, prove what I have been saying." He reminds those who will not carry their cross willingly that they will have to carry grumbling and complaining like those on the way to damnation. St. Louis reminds us that we need to carry our cross cheerfully: "Carry your cross cheerfully, and you will be filled with divine love; for only in suffering can we dwell in the pure love of Christ." Those who carry their crosses cheerfully will gather strength to conquer all their enemies and will find "the true earthly paradise in suffering for Christ." St. Louis also reminds us that we need to accept the crosses which come to us from Divine Providence in our daily life. These are the crosses which will be perfect for us. If we do carry our crosses the angels will exclaim to us: "Be careful not to…

The Friends of the Cross 01
St. Louis de Montfort writes this letter to those who are friends of Jesus and carry their crosses on the royal way of the Cross. So many have betrayed Jesus and ridicule the cross and live only for the pleasures of this world-- to eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. Jesus asks if we too will go away from Him and His Cross. Jesus asks, "If anyone want to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself; let him take up his cross; let him follow me." Scarcely one in ten thousand, as has been revealed to certain saints, that God, if he desire, could gather them together from one country, from one province. These blessed ones are so glorious: "So rejoice and be glad that God favours you with one of His choicest crosses; for without realising it, your are blessed with the greatest gift of heaven, the greatest gift of God.... But if this glory is so great on earth, what will it be in heaven?"

Last Minute Conversion of a Convict
This is a wonderful conversion story of an African American, named Claude Newman, in the early part of the 20th Century. He was convicted of murder and was condemned to the electric chair. Our Lady appeared to him and instructed him about the Catholic faith. He was awe-struck by her beauty and wanted to be with her in heaven! The chaplain to the prison instructed him in the faith and he was baptised. While awaiting a delay in the execution of his sentence, he offered his disappointment at not going to heaven immediately for the soul of another convict, James Hughes. When he was in the electric chair, he saw Claude by time was in heaven and his own place in hell. He screamed out and asked for a priest. He repented of his immoral life and died a holy death in the electric chair.

No Salvation Outside Catholic Church
"Outside the Catholic Church, there is no salvation" is a dogma of the Catholic Faith. All Catholics are required to believe it! However, today many with a false ecumenism believe that one Church is as good an another. This new spirit in the Church is an attempt to be friendly to all those in other Churches. This conference gives the reasons why this dogma has not changed in these modern times and must still be believed by those who profess the Catholic faith
