The Pope is nutty to say what he did.

I believe that, unfortunately, too many souls are damned. Scripture says:

Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many.

How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.

Matthew 7: 13 - 14

Private revelation to the children at Fatima showed hell with " a sea of fire. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form,

Well we know for sure that Cain is in Hell because the Bible says so.

One of our Priests used to tell us that “most of the people in hell never thought they’d end up there”.

An empty Hell is a condemned heresy of Origen. Francis has praised Origen in the past.

Just one more example of us needing to ignore/resist what the current occupant of the Chair of Peter has to say.

Of course not. The pope prefaced that this was his belief and not dogma. Again…confusing everyone. The pope said he hopes hell is empty and that isn’t reality. I’ll have to find the exact quote.

What’s just as bad is when individuals joke about going to Hell, as if there is no hope for them, so why try. I don’t know if this is because atheists do not believe in Hell, so it is a joke to them or, because they assume if there is a loving God, He would never have created Hell in the first place. This is why we need a Pope who speaks the truth and not the fluff. God does not send us to Hell. We choose Hell or we choose the Cross.

It breaks my heart when I hear someone say things like that. Good trigger for prayer for them.

Of course there is hope. We have the Sacrament of Confession. Not a Catholic? Go see about becoming one. Come into the Church! :dove::fire::pray:

I like the 100% no :slight_smile: How can I believe that hell is empty when in my personal experience I see things crawling out of it constantly? I suppose one might argue that my head is what isn’t empty, but I see what I see. Specifically, what I see is people walking around and taking actions that serve a designed purpose which they themselves are unaware of. By watching what people do, you can see the orchestration taking place and while at first one wants to grasp at explanations like “brainwashing,” adequate analysis forces me to conclude that these people don’t know what they are doing, and no human institution could possibly be organized and knowledgeable enough to be responsible for the clearly visible orchestration.
