“Go to hell or go to prayer” is a striking title for a post but it is not an overstatement. Why is it that Saints and Doctors of the Church Teresa of Avila and Alphonsus Liguori believe that without daily mental prayer we will go to hell and with daily mental prayer we are assured of heaven? On the surface, these claims seem to be a bit over the top. How can they justify these statements? In this video, I explore the reasons behind these striking statements and how we can gain insight into the wisdom of these great saints.
