Purgatory, hades and more


#1

Hey, can anyone give me apologetics (website references would be cool) for Mary’s immaculate conception, purgatory, hades, the 3 heavens, the two earths, the abyss, and paradise (the thief on the cross)? Thank you for your time.

You know, that might be a good question for Fr. Serpa.

newadvent.org/cathen/

The Catholic Encyclopedia has massive amounts of information about most of this stuff too.

I am also wondering about the “two earths”…

:confused:

Perhaps the New Heaven and New Earth is what he’s referencing to, but I’m not sure. Newbiefound, can you explain this statement a little bit?

yeah the second earth was what i was referencing and as for paradise i was referencing the thief on the cross next to christ. the heavens are the two he created in the beginning and the third is the one to come.

You’ll need to search for Mary as the Ark of the Coventant. I had a site right here, but the link seems to be defective right now. Maybe it will work later, maybe not. But believe me, the idea of Mark as the Ark will floor you. :wink:
