November focuses on the afterlife. On that month, Catholics celebrate the saints in heaven (1st Nov); and intercede for the Holy Souls in Purgatory (2nd Nov). On 11th Nov in Europe, we commemorate the end of the First World War, when victims died on an unprecedented scale. In England, by special indult, a Holy Mass of Requiem is even allowed on a Sunday to pray for those who died in battle. Those various motives are articulated in the doctrine of The Four Last Things: death, judgment, hell and heaven (the latter includes purgatory as its accidental antechamber). Comprising many fundamental dogmas, The Four Last Things is a most salutary doctrine. 

During this recollection, Fr de Malleray will address questions such as: Why do we die? Can we change our minds after death? Is God bound to give us a last chance? If hell exists, is it empty? Does it last forever? Can we help souls in purgatory? Are all saints in heaven equal? And many more… During a convivial lunch in the church basement, we will be able to discuss informally these questions.
