Mary & Saints in Heaven


#1

I have a question that will seem to tell you that my faith has completely vanished…but not really…

Do saints and whatever look down actually upon earth and see the people on earth doing whatever their doing? I mean, I thought that they were worshipping constantly or something :smiley: I don’t quite get it! :stuck_out_tongue: It’s a mystery! I always thought God looks down upon earth.

So if EVERYTHING looks down, then that must mean the saints and Mary and whatever sees EVERY SINGLE thing we do, eh? :smiley:

They are perfected in Love. In perfect Love, Christ “sees” all. In him the saints also “see.” But it certainly can’t be seeing as we do with our eyes. It must be something with the heart.

You ask the darndest questions!

The Saints see what God wants them to see. They are totally focused on worshiping God. God allows them to hear our prayers and respond.

So the saints have limits…even though they’re in Heaven?

Of course they have limits, they are not omnipotent. If saints were unlimited, they would be like God.

I thought when you’re in Heaven, you could see EVERYTHING! :smiley:

Sorry about that…I’m still ignorant of this! :o

The Gospel tells us we are surrounded by a “cloud of witnesses.” We are, on Earth, ministered to by Holy Angels and Saints. May they intercede mightily before God’s throne on our behalf.
