A Journey through her Diary – Saint Faustina Reveals True Homelessness

How concerned we are for the less fortunate who may suffer homelessness or endure overwhelming poverty! But really, their suffering is only a shadow of the real pain that is experienced for an eternity by rich and poor alike who are “spiritually bankrupt” and unrepentant of sin while living in the here and now. Saint Faustina in one of her visions explains real "eternal homelessness" this way …

“Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell. It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is! The kinds of tortures I saw: the first torture that constituted hell is the loss of God; the second is perpetual remorse of conscience; the third is that one’s condition will never change; the fourth is the fire that will penetrate the soul without destroying it – a terrible suffering since it is purely spiritual fire lit by God’s anger; the fifth torture is continual darkness and a terrible suffocating smell, and despite the darkness, the devils and the souls of the damned see each other and all the evil, both of others and their own; the sixth torture is the constant company of Satan; the seventh torture is the horrible despair, hatred of God, vile words, curses and blasphemies. These tortures are suffered by all the damned together, but that is not the end of the sufferings. There are special tortures destined for particular souls. These are the torments of the senses. Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings, related to the manner in which it has sinned. There are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another … Let the sinner know that he will be tortured throughout all eternity, in those senses which he made use to sin. I am writing this at the command of God, so that no soul may find an excuse by saying ‘there is no hell’, or that ‘nobody has ever been there’, and so that no one can say what it is like.” St. Faustina (+1938), from her Diary, Notebook II, #751
