"Hell is a reality, gentlemen. Christ Himself has said it. It matters little that non-believers deny it. Despite their denial, its existence is a terrible reality. But it is convenient that we go a little further and try to discover what is in it. The Catechism, that little book that contains a wonderful summary of Catholic doctrine, tells us that hell is "the sum of all evils, without any good". A wonderful definition. But there is another one, even more profound: the one that Our Lord Himself gave us in the Gospel. It is the same sentence that He will pronounce on the Day of the Final Judgment: "Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire." This terrible formula contains a marvelous summary of the whole theology of hell."
