    What Is Eternal Life? Msgr. Charles Pope • November 15, 2017 • This is the seventh in a series of articles on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell.I often think that we haven’t done a very good job of setting forth the doctrine of eternal life. For most people, the concept seems a rather shallow one: that we will live forever. Frankly, many may not consider it all that appealing if the place where we live forever is Heaven. Too often, Heaven is reduced to merely this: a place where I’ll be happy. I’ll have a...

    And Death Is Gain: A Reflection on the Proper Christian Sense of Death Msgr. Charles Pope • November 7, 2017 • This is the third in a series of articles on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell.Yesterday we pondered the fear of death and some understandable reasons for it, but we also considered how a lack of lively faith can lead to a fear of death that is unchristian. As St. Paul admonishes regarding death,We do not want you to … grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died...

She stayed with us during the initial hosting period over a year ago and we remained in regular contact. My wife and I felt sure her coming here was Gods will. When we first were married, my wife and I decided...

    <p>At about 3 p.m. on Friday, February 3, Tim Piazza, a sophomore at Penn State University, arrived at Hershey Medical Center by helicopter. Eighteen hours earlier, he had been in the kind of raging good health that only teenagers enjoy. He was a handsome, redheaded kid with a shy smile, a hometown girlfriend, and a family who loved him very much. Now he had a lacerated spleen, an abdomen full of blood, and multiple traumatic brain injuries. He had fallen down a flight of stairs during a hazing event at his fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, but the members had waited nearly 12 hours before calling 911, relenting only when their pledge looked fucking dead. Tim underwent surgery shortly after arriving at Hershey, but it was too late. He died early the next morning.</p>
