Catholic Answers Senior Apologist Jimmy Akin answers a caller who asks if animals go to Heaven or Hell after they die.
Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. At age 20 he experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, Jimmy started an intensive study of the Bible, but the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in the book Surprised By Truth.
Akin is a Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a member on the Catholic Answers Speakers Bureau, a weekly guest on the global radio program, Catholic Answers LIVE, a contributing editor for Catholic Answers Magazine, and the author of numerous publications, including the books Mass Confusion, The Salvation Controversy, The Fathers Know Best, and Mass Revision.

Here is some video footage of the Canterbury Cathedral and vicinity by Fr. Angelo Geiger. Canterbury Cathedral in Canterbury, Kent, is one of the oldest and most famous Catholic structures in England. The cathedral’s first archbishop was St. Augustine of Canterbury, previously abbot of St. Andrew’s Benedictine Abbey in Rome. He was sent by Pope Gregory the Great in A.D. 597 as a missionary to the Anglo-Saxons. Augustine founded the cathedral in 602 A.D. and dedicated it to St. Saviour. A pivotal moment in the history of Canterbury Cathedral was the martyrdom of St. Thomas Becket in the north-east transept on Tuesday December 29, 1170 by knights of King Henry II. The Cathedral became Anglican during the Reformation.
