A sermon on Hell as part of "The Four Last Things." Novel and vigorous; inspires a person to do whatever is necessary not to go there. Brief and powerful.
About the Author
St. Robert Bellarmine was born Roberto Bellarmino in 1542 at Montepulciano, Italy. A Jesuit Cardinal and Doctor of the Church, he was born of noble patronage and became a Roman novice in 1560 though the influence of his mother. After his ordination, he rapidly gained popularity as a professor and for his preaching, which drew in both Catholics and Protestants. He was also significantly active in the Counter-Reformation, and composed several works of literature, including The Mind's Ascent to God, The Art of Dying Well, The Seven Words on the Cross, and Hell and Its Torments. St. Bellarmine died on the seventeenth of September, 1621, at Rome, and was canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1930.

Highly Recommended! Review by Hugh
What a powerful booklet! As it says on its back cover: "Will certainly inspire people to do whatever is necessary NOT to go there."
Saint Robert Bellarmine explains the reasons for hell and the actual sufferings that all the damned experience there; inducing a dread and horror in the reader much greater than watching the scariest of movies.
Reading this small booklet creates Holy Fear and a firm determination to obey God and do His Will so we may avoid hell and attain Heaven; "the one and only goal of our labors." St. Therese (Posted on 8/17/2015)
