Going to Hell in a Handbasket

j0177806Ok, my first thought after typing that post title was, “Huh? Who the crap invented that whole saying? Because if anyone’s going to Hell, why would they be in a handbasket? And what’s a handbasket anyway? Is there really one big enough for an actual person to fit inside for going to Hell purposes?”

Whatever. Let’s just go with it.

Anyway, I’m not going there (fingers crossed); and if I were, I wouldn’t be going in a handbasket. A stolen Jaguar? Now there’s a possibility. But the purpose of this blog is not about me, or anyone I know, going to Hell. Instead, I’m sitting here studying my catechist material for presenting to young CCD’ers later today. Said material contains information about JUDGMENT. Only, I’m not talking just one JUDGMENT, but get this: TWO! That’s right – ‘Particular Judgment‘ for people after death and ‘Last Judgment‘ for the living and the dead when Jesus returns. And somewhere along those lines, I need to explain the concept of Hell to my CCD peeps… oh, this is going to get very interesting.

Someone throw me a rope – it’s getting deep in here.

    Just tell them it is like having to face mom and dad again when you die and they know “everything”. Even the stuff you don’t think they do. Eyes in the back of the head mentality..that should scare them into behaving for the rest of their lives….not! 😉 Good luck with that!

    @maksbestfriend – Now THAT’S what I needed to do! Want to be my co-catechist? You’d be good at it. 😉

    I love the title. I think it often – usually when I say or think something “unkind” about someone. There’s also a T-shirt I’ve seen that says “Where are we going and why am I in this basket?” I think the “eyes in the back of the head” comment says it all. Always worked for me!!
