  1. I have been searching the google waves for and answer to a simple question:
    what about all the millions who have died before the 2nd coming? Are they not in heaven or hell already? in our prayers it says he will come again to judge the living and the dead. Have they not been judged yet?
    Love to hear back from you.

  2. Hi Joe, great question. Yes, those who have died before the second coming are indeed in heaven, hell, or purgatory though in a temporary state without their bodies. St. Paul referred to them as “sleeping,” which is actually more true that we probably give him credit.. We believe in the resurrection of the body so at the Last Judgement our souls and bodies will be reunited, though in a glorified form. Upon our death we experience what the Church calls a “particular judgment” (see the Catechism, 1021-1022) in which we are immediately judged based on our acceptance or rejection of divine grace, then later the resurrection of the dead will precede the Last Judgment (See the Catechism, 1038-1050) in which we will experience our final judgment.
