Taught by Regis Martin, S.T.D.
How will we face the end? On whom does our hope finally depend? In short, what are the last things ever to be remembered? These are the questions examined in this course, whose lectures abound with insight and imagery drawn from the rich patrimony of the Church’s wisdom and experience.
What can we know from the lives of saints and sages – sinners, too – that will illumine the mysteries surrounding our lives?
Professor Martin identifies the Last Things each of us is destined to face – namely, Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell – reviewing them in the context of Christian hope, which is the virtue most necessary to the happy outcome of our journey home to God.
