WHAT HELL FEELS LIKE

Fr Jim Cogley



Continuing from yesterday: Could it be that the very light that seems beautiful to you would seem blinding to him? Could the very warmth of the love of that place, that to you is so perfect seem to him quite horrible? Could the acceptance, love, trust and openness that welcome you seem to him disgusting, weak, terrifying, insipid, or repulsive?.......Maybe it’s not that there are two places beyond the door of death, heaven and hell. Sometimes I wonder if hell is just what heaven feels like for those who haven’t learned in this life what this life is intended to teach. I believe with all my heart that God is not willing for even one person to miss out on the joy and glories of heaven. . . . We are becoming on this side of the door of death the kind of people we will be on the other side.
