"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

FATIMA: Is Hell Empty?

Is Hell Empty?

The Secret of Fatima opens with the terrifying vision of Hell. Through this vision, Our Lady reminds us right away of the essential, the only thing that counts ... our eternity.
"I am the Lady of the Rosary, I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and ask for pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day." Our Lady of Fatima

"As Our Lady spoke these last words...we saw as it were an ocean of fire. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. (It must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me.)" Sr Lucy
As Christians, we need a kick in the butt once in a while to get us back where we need to be. If we are starting as often as we should, we put our salvation in jeopardy.
With regards to the question of hell, God has never revealed the number nor the names of the damned, (except for Lucifer, the multitudes of fallen angels or demons, as well as for Judas, for whom - Jesus tells us - "it would have been better for him never to have been born," which can only be said of an eternally lost soul), because it would certainly be proved to be "improper to rack one's brains" on the subject of the existence of hell as well as on the fact whether it be full or empty, since God has clearly revealed to us that it does indeed exist and that it will be eternally inhabited not only by demons, but also by men damned through their own fault:
"Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'" (Mt. 7:22-23)
"Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" (Mt. 25:41).
Hell Exists, and We Could Go There. So, repent and turn back to God before it's too late... Do not fall into despair.... go for confession.
