The Church soft on Hell

I've just completed reading a very interesting article on the Roman Theological forum (I really must read it more often). The article in question is on the Ordinary form's treatment of hell and the final Judgment.Turns out that the new lectionary, has more references to Hell and Judgment, with more frequency, then the extra ordinary form, an increase of about 47%. You learn somthing new everyday, the article is defiantly worth a read.

The very last paragraph of Fr. Brian Harrison's article tells a very true story. It is the priest-homilist who is often to blame for "rationising" hell etc., until they are meaningless figures of speech out of touch with today's "superior" understanding of such matters. Change the priests and the problem is solved.
