The Theological Significance of Christ's Descent Into Hades
In the Tomb with the body, in Hades with the soul and on the Throne with the Father, wast Thou, Thyself, O Christ filling all things with Thy Glory. After the death of Christ on the Cross, our Lord went into Hades or Sheol "the region of the dead" to liberate the souls of the righteous who were held captive by Death. What does the Church say about this invasion by Christ? Who profited? Who did not profit? Does the Descent of Christ into Hades have any personal salvific importance for us? What the Scriptures and Fathers teach us about this Great Event.
In the Conference Room in the Lower Hall. All are invited!
