Pope Francis General Audience: “The Church is not a static reality”

Aleteia - published on 11/26/14

"This is the goal toward which the Church tends: it is, the Bible says, the “new Jerusalem”, “heaven”. More than a place, it is a “state” in which our deepest expectations will be fulfilled superabundantly and our being, as creatures and as children of God, will attain to full maturity. We will finally be completely enfolded in the joy, peace and love of God, without any limit, and we shall see Him face to face! It is lovely to think about this, to think about heaven. We will all be there, all of us. It is lovely to think of this, it gives strength to the soul".
