SBN #2 “What is Death” – Salvation Begins Now: Last Things First with Deacon James Keating

Episode 2 Salvation Begins Now: Last Things First – What is Death?  Why do we fail to contemplate its truth? Why do we fear it?  What is Purgatory?  Why is there a need for final purgation?

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

1030 All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven
