 Our Description


What Happens Next?

Recognizing that anxiety and fear are the most common personal problems he has encountered in nearly forty years of psychological counseling, Father Benedict Groeschel knows first hand that most people prefer to avoid the issue of mortality entirely.

Himself the victim of a hit-and-run accident in 2004, after which he had no vital signs for thirty minutes, Groeschel is uniquely qualified to address this subject.

Father Groeschel notes that the five mysteries death, judgment, Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven are beyond our perception and complete understanding. But through a better understanding of the Christian faith, we can see how consoling and uplifting these truths really are.

In His parables, Jesus spoke often of death and the last judgment. This is because what happens at our moment of death is defined by what is happening to us right now. Learn to live each new day with confidence based on the mercy and love of Our Savior.

"Do not let your heart be troubled or afraid. In my Father's house there are many rooms...I go to prepare a place for you."-- Gospel of St. John 14:1-3

And who, exactly is truly destined for eternal damnation... What about Purgetory?  Do the Evangelical denominations have it right, or do our souls truly need purification before we are face to face with God in Paradise?

Fr. Groeschel really delves JUST deep enough to explain our Judeo-Christian views and the Biblical foundation of what hapens after our physical bodies expire.  In addition, the visions of Saints (especially St. Catherine of Siena) who have been shown what Heaven, Purgatory and Hell are like are discussed and put up against popular ideals of each- for example- Dante's Divine Comedy.  For instance, the "fire" that souls in Purg Full Review...
