God does not send souls to hell. Souls are there because they freely chose to turn away from God, from his grace. At the moment of death, the soul's state is final. If the soul is not in a State of Grace, it is in a state of mortal sin. Turing away from God only leads to Hell.


In Hell there is no hope of Heaven:

The pains of hell are not the greatest part of hell; the loss of Heaven is the weightiest woe of hell." - St. John Chrysostom

The Horrors of Hell:

“Let us fancy we see hell, and imagine what is worst to behold – a horrible cavern full of black flames. Sulphur, devils, dragons, fire, swords, arrows, and innumerable damned who roar in despair. Imagine the worst you can, and then say, ‘All this is nothing compared to hell.'” - St. Ignatius of Loyola

“The wicked bodies of the condemned shall simmer and blaze in those living fires.” - St. Cyprian of Carthage

“The natural fire that we see during this life has great power to burn and torment. Yet this is not even a shadow of the fire of Hell.” - St. Anthony Mary Claret

The eternality of Hell:

“Poor Judas! Above seventeen hundred years have elapsed since he has been in Hell, and his Hell is still only beginning.” - St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

Do not ignore grace, and steadfastly remain in a state of grace:

“Do not neglect the grace that is offered to you. The God who offers the sinner pardon, does not promise him tomorrow.” - St. Wolfrand

Pray, Pray, Pray:

All souls in hell are there because they did not pray. All the saints sanctified themselves by prayer." - St. Alphonsus Liguori

Living for the World:

"Hell Can't be made attractive, so the devil makes attractive the road that leads there." - St. Basil the Great

"In Hell there is democracy, in Heaven there is a Kingdom." St. John of Kronstadt

"Sin is not the worst thing in the world. The worst thing is the denial of sin." = Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"Satan is always hidden and what he wants most is for us not to believe in his existence." - Fr Gabriele Amorth

"Hell was made for the inquisitive." - St. Augustine
