As we approach the end of the Creed, we now deal with the last parts of life on earth as a Catholic. What happens after death? What roles does the body have in the afterlife? How are we judged? Why are we judged twice (did you know that?)? Is Hell real and why would a loving God “create” Hell?

We will then transition away from the Creed and in the Sacramental life of the Church. What is a Sacrament and how does the differ from many Christian demoniyatios? How do Sacraments change they we live our life? This section is about how we insert ourselves in the story of God’s love that we just learned about in the Creed.
