  • Has anyone every had this said to them? 
    It seems to be a common thing when someone is mad to say this to another person. 
    What does it mean for the person who was cursed? Does the Church say anything about this?

  • Normally, curses are null and void unless the person who cursed you has legitamate authority over you. You can find examples in history and I think even a gray book by TAN called "The Catechist" where parents curse their children and such misfortunes really do befall them. However, attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and wearing the Brown Scapular also gives protection against these things, like hexes and wichcraft curses, etc.

    On another note, you can retort with "And may you go to Heaven". Jesus said "Bless those who curse you". And Marcus Aurelius says the best revenge is to just be happy and not act like the other person. Rather, we should feel sorry for them because they are not happy with their life.
      Of couse, there is always the possibility you did/said something to aggrivate them and provoked that response...
    Many people say "For the Honor and Glory of God!" but, what they should say is "For the Love, Glory and Honor of God". - Fr. Paul of Moll

  • I've only heard it said in the heat of the moment, there is no power to it.  Rude, obnoxious, yes.

    I too would reply with something like "and may the Lord bless your day"

  • I have not heard it told to me in years. In my culture, it is followed by fisticuffs if the person is a fighter. In my experience, anyone that told me to go to hell was a barking dog with no bight, so it was not necessary to get the first punch in.

  • In response to the curse coming from an authority figure, it was my apostate husband that told me to go to he**. He said in anger at the end of an argument he felt he was losing because I was walking away from it no longer wishing to argue. 
    I do not think the intention matters in regard to a curse, I just wanted to know if the Church has any words to say about it.

  • A diplomat is someone who can tell another person to "Go to He**" and that person will actually look forward to the journey.

    The Church says that it is a sin to say things like that.
