This summer, I published a series on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Hell, and Heaven.
I feel called to revisit this series for the season of Advent, which began on Sunday, November 28th.
Traditionally, the sermons preached on the four Sundays of Advent were on the Four Last Things.
Each week I’ll present a short post on one of the Four Last Things.
In each post I’ll share a:
- passage from Scripture
- quote from Venerable Fulton Sheen
- short prayer
- link to my previous post on the same topic
May this Advent be a season of spiritual preparation in which the Holy Ghost fills our souls and helps us to contemplate the Four Last Things.
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind; when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad. So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous, and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.” (Matthew 13:47-50)
Venerable Fulton Sheen
“Hell is a place where there is no love. Could anything be worse?”
Fatima Decade Prayer:
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
