Life After Death

Audio only:

What do Catholics believe about death, heaven, hell, and purgatory? Find out here, with Catholic Answers apologist, Karlo Broussard.

Questions Covered:

  • 05:04 - How can we reconcile the fact that God says he knew us before he knit us in our mother’s womb and the Catholic teaching that a soul comes into existence at conception?  
  • 14:03 - I have heard before that when Jesus died, he descended to the dead. Where did he go to retrieve the dead? 
  • 18:34 - Will we have free will at the Last Judgement? 
  • 29:34 - I know it is ultimately our decision whether we go to heaven or hell. Wouldn’t it be better for us not to have free will so we can all be in heaven? 
  • 45:07 - Is Judas in hell? What does the Catholic Church say about this? 
  • 52:25 - Is purgatory more like heaven or hell? If our loved ones go to hell, how can heaven truly be paradise for us?
