Dear AskACatholic,

  • If someone died without repenting of a mortal sin, is it a 100% fact that he's in Hell, or
    is God, in His mercy, willing to make exceptions even for these people, on a case by case basis, and let that person enter into ante-Purgatory or Purgatory?

Green Soldier

  { Are their cases where God will make any exception for some who dies with mortal sin? }

Mike replied:

Dear Green Soldier,

Thanks for the question.

The best answer to your question can be found by reading the web page link below from the Catechism. Read the whole page from the top to bottom or you may miss a critical part of the answer to your question.

You should also check out the various footnote references which can be found at the bottom of the page.

Chapter One — The Dignity Of The Human Person
Article 8 — Sin
I. Mercy And Sin

Side note: There is no such term as ante-Purgatory in Catholic theology.
