Learn the Catholic Faith: What happens when we die and what will the Second Coming of Christ be like?

 
Taken from the Catechism of the Catholic Church
 
What happens when we die?
 
1021 Death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ. The New Testament speaks of judgment primarily in its aspect of the final encounter with Christ in his second coming, but also repeatedly affirms that each will be rewarded immediately after death in accordance with his works and faith. The parable of the poor man Lazarus and the words of Christ on the cross to the good thief, as well as other New Testament texts speak of a final destiny of the soul -a destiny which can be different for some and for others.
 
1022 Each man receives his eternal retribution in his immortal soul at the very moment of his death, in a particular judgment that refers his life to Christ: either entrance into the blessedness of heaven-through a purification, or immediately, or immediate and everlasting damnation.
At the evening of life, we shall be judged on our love.
 
 
The Second Coming
 
1038 The resurrection of all the dead, "of both the just and the unjust," will precede the Last Judgment. This will be "the hour when all who are in the tombs will hear [the Son of man's] voice and come forth, those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment." Then Christ will come "in his glory, and all the angels with him .... Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.... and they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

The situation is even worse when someone else caused the accident and we end up paying the price. In this kind of situation, having a lawyer would really help to ease the burden when you are suing for personal injury.

Hiring a criminal defense attorney can be a good decision if you're facing criminal charges. Even if the charges against you are baseless, a skilled prosecutor may be able to convince a jury of your guilt.

While bankruptcy isn't an ideal solution for such financial woes, it can definitely put an end to constant harassment by creditors.

When buying a car, one should keep the following things in mind. Firstly, when negotiating the price of the car, be sure to negotiate the price rather than monthly payments. Often the dealer will try to sneak in a higher interest rate or longer contract than you may be aware.

Nearly every lawsuit that goes through the American court system can be lumped into one of two types of litigation: civil or criminal.

With the economy of the country almost on the verge of crash, it is nothing uncommon that most of the people are crying and howling for some Debt reduction help that will enable them to come out of their woes.

Lawsuit loans are the non-recourse sale of a portion of a plaintiff's future settlement proceeds in exchange for an immediate cash advance. Personal injury and worker compensation claims can take many years to be resolved. A lawsuit loan can provide a feasible financial lifeline to support your case and living expenses during this difficult period.
