The Catholic Encyclopedia of 1913 equates the General Judgment with the Final Judgment: "Judicium Universale, Last Judgment".
The Catholic Church does not teach, de fide, that the particular judgment is necessarily permanent. The purifying fire will not continue after the General Judgment. (Sent. communis.)Looking at Ott, it would also seem that the Catholic Church does not teach, de fide, that the Final, or General, judgment is necessarily permanent or final. In fact, the phrase "General judgment" is used in Ott only once, but it's permanency is not discussed:
Thank you for the information from Ott. We need to ask Fr Kimel if this corresponds with the recent teaching of the Catholic Church. He has reproached me for referring to things from a hundred years ago. Ott's sentiments seem to contradict the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church promulgated by Pope John Paul ii in 1997 which is, probably, the most recent teaching.
(However, you seem to be confusing the Particular and the General Judgement. I just think you got the terminology mixed.)
Yes, and the Orthodox also speak of either the Last Judgement or the Final Judgement. It is one and the same event.
However in your quote above you confuse the Particular and the Last (Final) Judgement.
You write "it would also seem that the Catholic Church does not teach, de fide, that the Final, or General, judgment is necessarily permanent or final." You really mean the Particular Judgement here.
However what you say is still incorrect because if you look at Ott, he says
3. With death the possibility of merit or demerit or conversion ceases. (Sent. certa.)
4. Immediately after death the particular judgment takes place, in which, by a Divine Sentence of Judgment, the eternal fate of the deceased person is decided. (Sent. fidei proxima.)
Ott, as well as the CCC, seems to contradict what Elijahmaria has been saying, namely that the Particular Judgement is not final and souls may be converted from one state to another up until the General (Final) Judgement.
