from Hammer and Fire
Fr. Raphael Simon, OCSO
As human beings we are a composite of body and soul. Our heats will be captivated by the sweetness of the society of Jesus and Mary, our eyes by the loveliness of their countenances, our ears by their voices. In their company we will be at home at last.
There will be the joy of the companionship of the saints, including relatives, friends, and intercessors.
No one will be lost in this multitude, no one unknown, no one neglected. Each will be, as it were, the center of attraction of all, of all-embracing love and amiable companionship, without trace of discord.
In heaven's ballroom there are no wallflowers,
no last-chosen left standing
for long hours
as the teams are formed.
In heaven's throne room, every child is
an only child with the full
attention of every person in the room.
God loves each as though
each one were His only child.
