Do those who die in mortal sin get a second chance to repent?

Full Question

Does the Catholic church teach that someone dying with mortal sin always goes to hell? With so many unexpected deaths, accidents, there must be a second chance to say “I’m sorry.”


At the last moment it may be possible to repent. But some people die so quickly that they may not have that moment. If a person dies as God’s enemy—which is what we are in mortal sin—then he goes to hell by his own choice. Most of us have had a lifetime to choose him.

  • Christian Azuero says:

    if you love and have faith on Him, you can enter into purgatory for repenting and cleaning from sins. He died in the cross to save us form our sins. The answers to this question is incomplete. If the soul do not repent, the soul has decided to go to hell.
