ESCHATOLOGICAL INQUIRY #3: HELL
What exactly does it mean to make the following request of Jesus every single Rosary decade:
"Save us from the fires of Hell"?
How do we explain this ‘request’ to those who have never prayed the Rosary before?
In our *newest* 4+ minute video, we invited His Eminence, Cardinal Thomas Christopher Collins to help us explore the meaning behind the word “Hell” in the Rosary decade prayer.
The video strives to unpack the word “Hell” found in the "O meu Jesus" taught to the three child visionaries: St. Jacinta Marto, St. Francisco Marto, and Blessed Lucia, by Our Lady of Fátima in Portugal 105 years ago.
Today’s post continues our earlier discussion at the Digital Café in our Eschatology 101 sessions with Cardinal Collins who joined us in conversation from his desk at the Archdiocese of Toronto in Canada.
Listen to The Rosary Hour Podcast’s discussion with Cardinal Collins on our essential question by clicking the following YouTube link:
So, … What Does The Church Mean By "Hell"?
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, article entry 1033, reminds us that:
"We cannot be united with God unless we freely choose to love him. But we cannot love God if we sin gravely against him, against our neighbour, or against ourselves".
Also, the CCC cites 1 John 3: 14-15:
“We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.”
In your RCIA group / classroom / seminary / home school / family / student prayer journals, try reflecting on the meaning of the various comments / citations made in Micro Masterclass #3 featuring Cardinal Collins.
Two additional voices in this introductory video on “Hell” include:
Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (c.f. Go to Heaven) and
Saint Pope John Paul II (c.f. Crossing the Threshold of Hope).
Imagine How St. Thomas Aquinas would respond to the follow Debate Topics?
Be it Resolved that “Hell” is somewhere we go, not a state of being.
Be it Resolved that “Hell” is a state of being, not a place we go.
Be it Resolved that ‘Eternal Life’ exists.
Be it Resolved that ‘Eternal Life’ does not exist.

Dear Jesus: Venerable Patrick Peyton devoted his priestly life to strengthening the families of the world by calling them to pray together everyday, especially the Rosary. His message is as important for us now as it was during his life on earth.
We beg you, therefore, to hasten the day of his beatification, so that your faithful people everywhere will remember his massage that the family that prays together stays together, will imitate him in his devotion to your Mother and ours, and will be inspired by his holy life to draw ever closer to you with childlike confidence and love.
