Default Are all souls consecrated in heaven?

Is it true that all souls will be consecrated souls in heaven and some souls are chosen to live that reality already? Or will there still be a difference in heaven between those who are consecrated and those who aren't? Do religious vows leave an indelible mark on the soul?

I am trying to start a new thread. Maybe the title of my previous thread kept me from getting responses?? Thanks to anyone who answers!

Thanks and God bless!

according to some private revelations (for example, to St Faustina) - religious life does leave an indelible mark on the soul... but it's true that all souls in Heaven will have the beatific vision and will live in union with God

Default Re: Are all souls consecrated in heaven?

I once heard that it used to be taught (maybe it still is) that in heaven, the holier you had been on earth, the "closer" you would be to God while in heaven.

if this is true, then I assume that living a very holy consecrated life (givning up all for God's glory, would leave you with a very real special closeness to the Lord when you get there.

what do you think about this?

many blessings!!!
Our Lord Jesus has a mighty plan for your life: in Him
