Fr. Patrick Briscoe, O.P., on Advent and our Journey towards Heaven

"What will heaven be like?

"It is very tempting to conjure up images like cruise ships or all inclusive resorts. We want to believe that heaven will satisfy our every desire, and here and now most of our desires are driven by our bodily, even carnal appetites. We want to eat our fill. We want to drink to delight. We want to laugh and play games. We want to rejoice and dance. All of this and more we want without any sorrow, without any suffering, without any pain."

In a recent commentary, Father Patrick Briscoe, O.P., reflected on what heaven may be like (based on Scripture) and on how the road we travel as we live our life is not our ultimate destination, with Advent being a "time to take stock of our trip."
