  12. 12. TThhee LLaasstt TThhiinnggss The final events and conditions of human beings  Death Death is the separation of the spiritual soul from the material body. The soul is immaterial and immortal. At death the possibility of conversion ceases. Time to accept or reject having grace and salvation ends. The souls goes immediately to Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory.
  13. 13. TThhee LLaasstt TThhiinnggss Particular Judgment A person’s individual encounter with Christ at the moment of death.  Each person receives either eternal damnation  Entrance into the blessedness of heaven  Through a purification process called purgatory

  15. 15. PPuurrggaattoorryy Where the souls of the saved who died imperfectly purified are “purged” to achieve the holiness needed to enter Heaven. It is not a physical place but a state of existence. We can help the souls in purgatory by praying, offering sacrifices and having Masses said for them.
  16. 16. HHeellll  Eternal separation from God and the blessed in Heaven.  Souls that die in unrepentant mortal sin spend eternity continually thirsting for God while hating him. (Doesn’t sound fun) .  Souls are in Hell b/c they chose it.  We can’t love God if we sin grievously against him, our neighbor or ourselves.  This is why confession is so very, very important! It forgives our grave sins and restores us to communion with God and his saving grace.
  17. 17. HHeeaavveenn  State of everlasting life with God in eternal happiness.  (Happiness is what we all want from life and it is found in Christ and ultimately with him in heaven).

CCrreeaattiioonn,, CChhaarriissmmss,, && HHoolliinneessss Because we are all created in the image and likeness of God, we have been given charisms (Graces and Gifts fo the Holy Spirit) that enables us to build of the Body of Christ. The Church helps us cooperate with God’s grace to use these gifts and by doing so we become holy.
  21. 21. CCoonncclluussiioonn Thinking about what happens after death is not always comfortable. The reality of Hell can be distressing, but take comfort in knowing we were created for Heaven, communion with God and eternal happiness. Redemption is ours if we respond to Christ and live according to his will for us. If we embrace the moral law and seek holiness, we will reach our heavenly goal. This is the happiness that we all desire. Along the way we can pray for those in purgatory and ask those who have died to pray for us.

MMaarryy,, MMootthheerr ooff GGoodd  Mary is properly called the Mother of God because she gave birth to the Son of God, thus giving him his human nature.  Mary is called the Immaculate Conception because, in preparation for her special role, she was conceived without the stain of Original Sin.

  • here is only one Mystical Body, only one Church. But this Church has three aspects: the Church Triumphant, the Church Suffering, and the Church Militant.
    The saints and angels in heaven compose the Church triumphant, because they have gained the crown of victory. The souls in purgatory compose the Church suffering, because they still have to expiate for their sins before they can enter heaven. The faithful on earth compose the Church militant, because they have to struggle ceaselessly against the enemies of their souls.The Church triumphant, the Church suffering and the Church militant compose one Church united in Christ, members of a body whose head is Christ: "So we, the many, are one body in Christ, but severally members one of another' (Rom. 12:5).
    All the members of the Church are of one family, and share in the spiritual treasures of the Church. However, not all members of the Church Militant fully enjoy the benefits of the communion of saints, but only those in a state of grace."Dead members" do not lose all the benefits of the communion of saints, for the Church prays publicly for them, and particular members in the state of grace often send up petitions for them. Thus they may receive the grace to repent and recover sanctifying grace. Hence a Catholic who still belongs to the Church, although a great sinner, may have more hope of being converted than one who cuts himself off from the Church.
    How do the members of the Communion of Saints help one another? --The members of the Communion of Saints help one another by prayer and intercession, and by the merits of their good works.
    The faithful on earth can help one another by practicing supernatural charity and, especially, by performing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.St. Peter was freed from prison by the prayers of the faithful. St. Stephen's prayer obtained the conversion of St. Paul. The prayers of St. Monica led to the conversion of her son, St. Augustine. This is why today, on all occasions, Catholics ask for each other's prayers, and pray for those in need. They give the spiritual alms of prayers continually, even when they cannot perform the corporal works.
    The faithful on earth, through the communion of saints, can relieve the sufferings of the souls in purgatory by prayer, fasting, and other good works, by indulgences, and by Masses offered for them.St. Augustine says: "Prayer is the key by which we open the gates of heaven to the suffering souls." In the Memento after the consecration at every Mass, a special petition is made for the souls of the faithful departed. The poor souls cannot merit anything; they depend upon their brothers in Christ on earth and in heaven to help them attain their eternal home as soon as possible.
    The souls in purgatory pray to the angels and saints, and pray for the living.They cannot merit anything, either for themselves or for the living, but they intercede for us.
    Through the communion of saints, the blessed in heaven can help those in purgatory and on earth by praying for them. The faithful on earth should honor the blessed in heaven and pray to them, because they are worthy of honor and as friends of God will help the faithful on earth.This is why we pray to the saints and angels that they may intercede for us before God, Whom they see face to face. "Rendering thanks to God the Father, who has made us worthy to share the lot of the saints in light" (Col. 1:12).
    The doctrine of the communion of saints is one of the most consoling dogmas of the Church. When our loved ones die, they are not separated from us forever. Whether in heaven or purgatory, they still love us and pray for us.We should be happy to call saints and angels our brothers. We should implore their intercession, not only for ourselves, but also for our other brothers, the poor souls in purgatory.

  • CatholicCatholic Christians believe that all men and women will experience the end of this human life. The Word of God teaches us that each person will be judged immediately after death.
    Catholics believe that the souls of the saved who are in need of further purification before facing God will be purged in purgatory.
    Heaven awaits those souls found to be in the state of grace or perfection.
    Hell or eternal damnation awaits those souls who die without repentance for their sins.
    At the end of the world, Jesus will come again in power and glory--the Parousia.
    At this time the bodies of all the dead will be resurrected.
    Those still living will be taken up into the air to meet Jesus. General judgment of all people will then be made.
    The blessed will possess heaven for all eternity; the damned will suffer hell for all eternity.
