Br. Bartholomew Calvano, O.P., on the Richness of Heavenly Life

"Getting to heaven is often given as the reason we should be good. Unfortunately, heaven is frequently presented as a place of fluffy clouds and baby angels playing harps. In fact, my own idea of heaven growing up was largely shaped by such popular depictions epitomized by the movie The Littlest Angel. In light of these depictions, it's no wonder that heaven isn't particularly attractive to many people. Even if we don't imagine fluffy clouds, we probably think of eternal life as a continuation of this life, forever; but, of course, without all of the bad stuff that goes along with our day-to-day lives."

In a recent commentary, Brother Bartholomew Calvano, O.P., reflected on some of the reasons why many people do not strive for Heaven and on the real richness of heavenly rest.
