693. Just as love to the Lord and towards the neighbour, and the resulting joy and happiness constitute heaven, so hatred against the Lord and against the neighbour, and the resulting punishment and torment constitute hell. There are countless genera of hatred, and even more countless species. And the hells are just as countless.
