Sunday Sermon, November 12 -- On the Real Possibility of Hell (Sermons on the Last Things, part 3 of 5)

In the final three weeks of the Liturgical Year, we consider: Hell, Purgatory, Heaven.

Hell is revealed in Sacred Scripture, and is a regular part of the preaching of Jesus Christ. No one tells us more about hell in Scripture, than our Lord. And Jesus indicates that hell is a real possibility - that perhaps most go to hell (through the wide gate) and only a very few are saved (through the narrow gate).

We consider the four sins which St Alphonsus indicates as the main ways that people go to hell after death: Hatred of our neighbor, blasphemy against God, theft, and impurity.

Adult Faith Formation Series on the Angels: Session 5, The Guardian Angels

The following question and answer study of the guardian angels is based on the Summa Theologica I, qq.50-64 (angels in themselves) and qq. 106-114 (angels in relation to creatures). ST I, q.113, is particularly enlightening, since it is a question devoted wholly to the guardianship of angels over human beings.
