Nicene Creed –Descended

He descended into hell.

“This article thus asserts that Christ strode through the gate of our final loneliness, that in his Passion he went down into the abyss of our abandonment. Where no voice can reach us any longer, there he is. Hell is therby overcome, or, to be more accurate, death, which was previously hell, is hell no longer.”  (Joseph Ratzinger)
