A small glimpse of heaven.

Ever wonder about what heaven is like? Will we be able to fly? Talk to people we miss so dearly who had died before us? Maybe meet our children who we never had the chance in this life to meet? Today at Mass we found out what heaven, or eternal life is like.

"Now this is eternal life,
that they should know you, the only true God,
and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ."
To "know Him"? At first this sounds like kind of a let down because we have such an incomplete understanding of who God really is. Wonderful things like the ability to fly, talk to those we miss, and to be with those whom we love are only small glimpses of a God who is truly and completely love.

If the beautiful things of this world are only hints of ‘the only true God’, how amazing is it going to be to not only meet Him, but to know Him? And best of all, to know Him for all eternity.
