What Is Heaven?

Mirror link

Heaven is the everlasting [Ps 83:5; 124:1; Is 60:19; Mt 19:16; 25:46; Jn 17:3; Rom 6:23; Heb 9:15; Rev 3:12] abode in which those who died in a state of grace see [Ex 33:13; Ps 79:20; Jn 14:8,21; 1 Cor 13:12; 1 Jn 3:2] but do not comprehend the essence of God, i.e., they have perfect happiness [Mt 25:21; 2 Cor 12:4] and their every desire is fulfilled [Ps 102:5] because the essence of God is "the form whereby their intellect understands" [ST III-S, q. 92, art. 3, corp.].
