I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
So-- if those in heaven are (a) able to see what’s going on on earth, and (b) care about what’s going on on earth, enough to © rejoice over something, wouldn’t it follow that (d) inviting them to participate through their intercession would be their important work?
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
And why is that? Because if you’re in heaven, after death, you have no more need of faith. You’re in the presence of God. You have no more need of hope. You’re in the presence of God. All that’s left is love. Intercession, whether performed here on earth or in heaven, is an act of love. But wouldn’t the intercession of a saint in the presence of God be far more potent than our stumblings on earth?
