1007–1009

Each person must face the end of their earthly life. This is called death. Death is a result of the sin of Adam and Eve. Through Christ and the Church, death is transformed into a blessing.




1011

In death, God calls men and women to Himself. It is good to be unafraid to face death. In the words of St. Paul the Apostle, “I long to depart this life and be with Christ, for that is far better.”




1022

At the time of death we encounter Christ and experience the particular judgment. Depending upon how we have lived our lives, we will experience our final destiny which may be immediate or eventual eternal union with God or immediate eternal separation from God.




1023–1024

Those who die united to God through the grace of a faithful life will experience heaven. Heaven is a perfect life in communion and love with the Trinity, the Blessed Mother, all the angels, and saints.

286

1030–1031

Those who die in God’s grace but still must undergo purification will experience purgatory. This is where one must be purified of sin and its effects so as to enter into the Eternal Kingdom of God forever.

227, 229

1033–1034

Those who have chosen in life to reject God are without love. They choose to exclude themselves from communion with God for all eternity. This eternal life without God is called hell. Hell is the state of separation from God because each person is born with a desire for God. For this reason, pain of hell is sometimes likened to fire, however, the “fire” of hell is not physical, material fire.




1038–1039

At the end of time there will be the last judgment. All people, whether good or bad, will be gathered before Christ. In the presence of Christ the truth of each person’s life with God will be laid bare. Only God knows the day or the hour.




946–949

The Communion of Saints is a special union of the members of the Church on earth, in purgatory, and in heaven. Because of this each person on earth can ask for the saints’ intercession. This union allows each person to pray for those on earth and those in purgatory.
