Our Eternal Destiny (CCC 988-1065) 


Last Things: Resurrection of the Body, Death, Particular Judgement, Heaven, Purgatory, Hell, Last Judgement, New Heavens, and New Earth
God ‘wants everyone to be saved and reach full knowledge of the truth’ (1 Tm 2:4). God’s desire for the salvation of every human person is the basis for our reflections on death, judgement, heaven, purgatory, hell and eternal life with God. Only in light of God’s unfailing offer of friendship and covenant love do we best understand Catholic beliefs about the ‘Last Things’. In light of Jesus’ victory over death in his resurrection and ascension we have the certain hope of our eternal union with God.
