Heaven Reflected in the Faces of the Saints (#447, All Saints)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Solemnity of All Saints. The Book of Revelation gives us a glimpse into Heaven. It is meant to encourage Christians to persevere through the tribulations because Christ is coming soon. Heaven is more than just a place, Heaven is a person, and His name is Jesus Christ. The love, peace, joy and healing that we long for all come from being in the presence of God. Heaven is happy and beautiful because it always experiences His presence. The Beatitudes sketch the face of Christ. They also show us what our faces will look like when we begin reflecting Heaven’s light. Live in His presence today.
