That is, the human body is attached to the earth, and the soul is sent to the creator. However, we know that before finding peace, the Last Judgment is awaiting the soul.
There the whole course of life will be evaluated, all good and evil deeds, and in the end it will be decided to go to Heaven, Purgatory or Hell.
- Paradise — a place full of harmony and peace. Only the purest of souls or those who sincerely repent of the mistakes of life on earth come here. Here everyone will find their place and be happy.
- Purgatory is a place for those who made mistakes in mortality and are ready to correct them. In Purgatory, all sins are redeemed, and only those who truly understand everything can go on and deserve a place in Paradise. However, only the lightest sins can be forgiven here. The purgatory is also often called the place of justice.
- Hell is the worst place in the whole world. Here souls are condemned to centuries of torment. All sinners here feel the horror and suffering several times superior to those they have created in mortal life. What is doomed here (otherwise it’s impossible to name it) cannot be described by ordinary speech, not a single epithet is enough to accurately convey the nightmare and the fear enveloping this place.
