I highly recommend this book for helping to understand the theology regarding the afterlife, as well as for helping to focus one's thoughts on our goal, union with God in heaven.
theological treatise on the "last things" according to
Christian revelation: death, judgment, heaven, hell, and
purgatory. Written by the theologian who was the dissertation
director for Pope John Paul II's doctoral work in spiritual
theology on the doctrine of St. John of the Cross, it
continues the author's habit of synthesizing the tradition of
the Church within the light of the teaching of St. Thomas
Aquinas. It is perhaps the simplest yet most theologically
lucid introduction to the Church's teaching on these matters.
Then there is the section on hell. Discussions of hell are always difficult to read, and this is no exception. Fr G-L discusses the pain of loss and the pain of sense. We will feel a deep burning pain at knowing that we have not fulfilled our ends as human beings, that we have been reduced to a mere shadow of what we were meant to be. This is a pain far worse than the pain of sense, even though the pain of sense is beyond anything that anyone has ever experienced in this life. Terrifying. Why screw around with sin? Father G-L also discusses whether or not there are literal flames in hell.Read more ›
to read the first section but I find it difficult to put down. It is the best book we have
read and we have been meeting for almost 5 years.
The authors approach was simple and comforting.
Would strongly recommend it for one's own spiritual growth.
