Does the Soul Which Dies in Mortal Sin Go Straight to Hell, or Does God Offer His Mercy One Last Time?


Fr. Groeschel says that at our final hour God offers his divine mercy to each individual. I believe this, but isn't this contrary to the Catholic teachings that if an individual dies with mortal sin on his soul, his destination is hell?


The Lord’s divine mercy is contingent on whether the person wants it or not. The Church has always taught that even in the last moments of life if a person repents, he or she will receive God’s mercy and be forgiven.
