A GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN (EXCERPT FROM THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY)

Moreover, in heaven, we can hope to meet once again those whom we loved and lived with on earth. Scriptures does not speak of this but Mary's Assumption at the side of Christ is an indication that love which began here on earth will continue in heaven. And to this we can add the encouraging and consoling words of St. Cyprian: "What man, stationed in a foreign land, would not want to return to his own country as soon as possible? Well, we look upon Paradise as our country and a great crowd of our loved ones awaits us there, a countless throng of parents, brothers and children longs for us to join them. Assured though they are of their own salvation, they are still concerned about ours. What joy both for them and for us to see one another and embrace. O the delight  of that heavenly kingdom where there is no fear of death! O the supreme and endless bliss of everlasting life!!!
