The Four Last Things - Death, Judgment, Hell, Heaven
It has ever been the practice of the Catholic Church to recommend to her spiritual children the meditation on man's Four Last Things - Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. Keeping these sobering aspects of human destiny ever before our eyes, we will be that much less likely to fall into mortal sin and be lost eternally.
Father Martin von Cochem, famous for his beautiful treatise on the Mass, reviews in this powerful little book the many facts we should all meditate on as we contemplate death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. No one should fear to make this meditation, for it will certainly, like a draught of strong spiritual medicine, stimulate our souls to repentance, if we are in mortal sin, and to even greater diligence if we are already managing to live the life of Sanctifying Grace. As he who knows the truth in these mattes will better prepared for his Particular Judgment, so he who reads this book will come to understand the importance of frequently making this powerful meditation.
