Life is Worth LivingDiscover the Catholic Vision of Life

Is Hell Crowded or Empty?

“Rob Bell is an evangelist and pastor – a leader in this emerging church movement. He’s written a book called Love Wins and it’s a book about eternal life. And he stakes out a more or less Universalist position meaning everyone get’s saved, so in the end, everyone gets to heaven. And it’s kicked up a controversy…Watch and listen to Fr. Barron’s commentary discussing ‘Is Hell Crowded or Empty?’” at IntegratedCatholicLife.org!

St. Luke, pray for us!

CCH Book Recommendation

Check out Patrick Madrid’s book, Any Friend of God’s is a Friend of Mine

“The best ever explanation of the Catholic doctrine of the communion of saints written for a popular audience. Patrick Madrid explains in a clear, easy-to-follow style why Catholics pray to and honor Mary and the saints. Using the Bible and the testimony of the early Church Fathers, he provides a concise overview of the biblical and historical foundations of this often misunderstood Catholic doctrine. He also walks you through the standard anti-Catholic arguments against praying to Mary and the saints and demonstrates from the Bible why these arguments are themselves unbiblical.”
