The greater the charity of the Saints in their heavenly home, the more they intercede for those who are still on their journey and the more they can help them by their prayers; the more they are united with God, the more effective those prayers are. This is in accordance with Divine order, which makes higher things react upon lower things, like the brightness of the sun filling the atmosphere.
St. Thomas Aquinas

It makes me think of a gigantic, ever expanding circle of lights. Cheesy

To suffer and to be happy although suffering, to have ones feet on the earth, to walk on the dirty and rough paths of this earth and yet to be enthroned with Christ at the Fathers right hand, to laugh and cry with the children of this world and ceaselessly to sing the praises of God with the choirs of angels, this is the life of the christian until the morning of eternity breaks forth.
St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein)

AMEN!

I am the root and stock of David, the bright and Morning Star (Apoc. 22:16). Mary is called the Star of the Sea" for as those who sail on the ocean are directed to the port they seek by observing the stars, so Christians are directed to glory by Mary.

I used to go to a church called 'Our Lady Star of the Sea'. Cheesy

They truly did up the altars beautifully around Christmas time.

Ask the beauty of the earth, ask the beauty of the sea, ask the beauty of the ample and diffused air.
Ask the beauty of heaven, ask the order of the stars, ask the sun, which with it's splendor brightens the day;
Ask the moon, which with it's clarity moderates the darkness of night.
Ask the beasts that move in the water, that walk on the earth, that fly in the air:
souls that hide, bodies that show themselves;
the visible that let's itself be guided, the invisible that guides.
Ask them! All will answer you:
Look at us, we are beautiful!
Their beauty makes them known.
This mutable beauty, who has created it if not immutable Beauty?
St. Augustine

'Whether I eat or drink, whatever else I do,
The dreadful trumpet of the last day,
Seems always sounding in my ears:
Arise, ye dead and come to judgement.'

A follower of Pluto (Christianized), dealing with the transcendence and beauty of reality, as opposed to a follower of Aristotle (such as St. Thomas Aquinas was - Christianized) who dealt with the rational laws of reality. St. Patrick was another who paid more attention to the beauty and transcendence of Christianity. I don't know if I put that in a way that could be understood.

To draw near to Jesus we must be so little....Oh! how few souls aspire to be little and unknown.

'How greatly did I weep in Thy hymns and canticles, deeply moved by the voices of Thy sweet-speaking Church! The voices flowed into mine ears, and the truth was poured forth into my heart, whence the agitation of my piety overflowed, and my tears ran over, and blessed was I therein. '
