Pain

Additional Links

There are two kinds of pain: pain of loss and pain of sense.

  • Pain of loss results:
  • in Hell, from the eternal loss of God, whose possession alone in the Beatific Vision can completely satisfy the desire of intelligent beings for happiness
  • in Purgatory, from the temporary deprivation of Him, whom the soul realizes to be the source of all happiness
  • in Limbo there will be no subjective pain of loss (not an article of faith, but the opinion of Saint Thomas
  • Pain of sense principally consists in the torment of fire. The nature of this fire is not known.
