First topic for discussion:

1. After death, each human person is judged by God (the particular judgment). Everyone who dies in a state of grace goes to Heaven, perhaps after a temporary stay in Purgatory. Everyone who dies unrepentant from actual mortal sin goes to Hell.

Pope Pius XII: "Above all, the state of grace is absolutely necessary at the moment of death; without it, salvation and supernatural happiness -- the beatific vision of God -- are impossible." [Address to Midwives, n. 21.a.]

Pope Benedict XII: "Moreover we define that according to the general disposition of God, the souls of those who die in actual mortal sin go down into Hell immediately after death and there suffer the pain of Hell." [On the Beatific Vision of God]
