Heaven

A short break in all the apologetics and Church history etc... to remember why we're all blogging about these topics in the first place; we all have one common goal which we hope to obtain for ourselves and for others: eternal life. I stumbled across this last night from the catechism:

1024 This perfect life with the Most Holy Trinity - this communion of life and love with the Trinity, with the Virgin Mary, the angels and all the blessed - is called "heaven." Heaven is the ultimate end and fulfillment of the deepest human longings, the state of supreme, definitive happiness.

1027 This mystery of blessed communion with God and all who are in Christ is beyond all understanding and description. Scripture speaks of it in images: life, light, peace, wedding feast, wine of the kingdom, the Father's house, the heavenly Jerusalem, paradise: "no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him."
Lets keep up the good fight so that we will be found worthy.
