Item description for Heaven in You & You in Heaven: Unveiling Eternity on Earth by Elizabeth M. Kelly...
Overview We all long for heaven, and yet, we have only vague notions about what it's like. But maybe we've already been to heaven - maybe heaven is all around us and we simply don't see it. In this deeply thoughtful and inspiring book, popular author Elizabeth Kelly helps us to see our lives with "heavenly eyes." Drawing on our rich Catholic tradition, Kelly explores the attributes of heaven. She describes it as a community of protection, intercession, and unconditional love that is marked by beauty, joy, glory, mercy, justice, and rest. When we practice these qualities and hold them deep within our hearts, we draw closer to heaven - and heaven reaches down to meet us. This book will give readers a sense of eager anticipation for eternal life, and Kelly's lively writing style makes it a joy a read.
