"There is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul." Pope Francis
“Eternal damnation is not a torture chamber. That’s a description of this second death: it is a death. And those who will not be received in the Kingdom of God, it’s because they have not drawn close to the Lord. These are the people who journeyed along their own path, distancing themselves from the Lord and passing in front of the Lord but then choosing to walk away from Him. Eternal damnation is continually distancing oneself from God. It is the worst pain, an unsatisfied heart, a heart that was created to find God but which, out of arrogance and self-confidence, distances itself from God.” Pope Francis
Why does the Pope feel the need to make a distinction?
At the end of days when the damned are cast into hell both body and soul these damned are tormented by both separation from God and in their flesh for the sins they committed....for all eternity...that's forever...and forever......
