A 40 day series on heaven, hell, and purgatory.

Are You Ready for Eternity?

Do you ever think about life after death? What will it be like? Will the things you did in this life follow you into eternity? What are the souls of your departed loved ones experiencing right now? Far from being morbid, reflecting on what will happen to our souls at the moment of our death is not only fascinating, it also does us much good. When we contemplate the life that awaits us, it will help us to increase our faith, our hope, our love for God, and our desire to be with Him forever. It is a means by which we can learn more about our Savior and marvel at the greatness of how He has redeemed our fallen world. All of this is encapsulated in the Church's teaching on The Four Last Things.

What are The Four Last Things?

Every human soul will experience the same thing at the end of their earthly life: the soul will be separated from the body and immediately face the justice of God. After we give Him an account of our lives, the soul will receive one of two destinies: either blissful union with God forever, or painful separation from Him forever. The Church calls this The Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell.

Many people have mistaken ideas about life after death, and believing what is false can put our souls in danger. In fact, there is no other subject that is more important to learn the truth about. And there is no other authority to which we can turn to tell us the truth about our eternal life than the visible Church founded by God Himself, Jesus Christ.

The Catholic Church teaches us everything we need to know about the meaning of life, what happens to us when we die, and what we will experience in eternity. There's no subject more fascinating to learn about. Reflecting on these amazing truths will allow us to live in the light of God’s truth about who we are and where we’re heading.

This series was life-changing for me. It made me remember and reflect on the lessons I learned in Catholic grade school. It strengthened my prayer life and brought peace to me. Now when I think of the troubles in the world, I remember that God is in control and we always have recourse to Him and his holy Mother. Thank you so much--I am so glad I did this.

This series provided an enrichment I was not expecting! I learned many aspects of the four last things that were new to me. Definitely deepened my focus on my faith and the infinite merits awaiting the faithful. My faith journey has taken on a renewed earnestness and steadfast focus on eternity.

This is a gift from God! Sobering realization of who you are living your life for - you or God. Each session will leave you reflecting on where you are in the journey and where you want to end up for eternity.

Thank you for a great journey! I learned much about the end that is really just the beginning. Some was exhilarating, some sobering, but all necessary to know. I especially liked what the saints had to say about the last 4 things. This course has given me much to ponder!
