"On Heaven" (part 2)

 "Paradise" by Jacopo Tintoretto (for larger version click here)

The following is taken from a sermon for the Second Sunday of Lent by our Lenten guide, St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church:

"Here below, God is hidden from our view; we can see him only with the eyes of faith: how great shall be our happiness when the veil shall be raised, and we shall be permitted to behold God face to face!  We shall then see his beauty, his greatness, his perfection, his amiableness, and his immense love for our souls."

St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us.
