The guiding star of this site is fidelity to Rome.

From torrid south to frozen north,
The wave harmonious stretches forth,
Yet strikes no chord more true to Rome’s,
Than rings within our hearts and homes.
Cardinal Wiseman

Hell Opened to Christians

Father Giovanni Pietro Pinamonti S.J.$10.99

Hell Opened to Christians For three centuries English-speaking Catholics have found spiritual nourishment in Father Pinamonti’s classic Hell Opened to Christians, but prior to the present edition it has long been out of print. Not even the knowledge that it was the source for the celebrated sermon on Hell in James Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man could make it of more than academic interest to an age for which eternal damnation is an exploded myth rather than the greatest and most real of all perils. The uncompromising doctrine, terrifying descriptions and spine-chilling illustrations of Hell and its torments have made this book an object of repugnance to worldlings, unbelievers and modernists. But for those who believe in God’s revelation on this topic as transmitted to us by His Church, there can surely be no more salutary safeguard. Is it possible to read Hell Opened to Christians and yet to remain wilfully in the state of mortal sin ?
