23. I believe in eternal life
Death opens the door to "eternal life" that is the objective of man. We know by the revelation that life "does not end, it changes." So that those who believe in Christ can get an eternal place in heaven. We will live forever!
That is what it is about. As Saint Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer said: “what we have to try to do is to get to heaven. If we don't, nothing is worth while.” This is the final destination of our existence. But the real destination corresponds to the use of freedom and therefore, if we live with God, we will reach heaven, but if we live ignoring him and die in mortal sin, the hell will be our destiny. There is a temporary situation, when the man dies in grace but he is not finished purified and must do so in purgatory.
