St. Faustina’s Vision of Heaven

Part II

604

When, during adoration, I repeated the prayer, “Holy God” several times, a vivid presence of God suddenly swept over me, and I was caught up in spirit before the majesty of God.  I saw how the Angels and the Saints of the Lord give glory to God.  The glory of God is so great that I dare not try to describe it, because I would not be able to do so, and souls might think that what I have written is all there is.  Saint Paul, I understand now why you did not want to describe heaven, but only said that eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him [cf. 1 Cor 2:9; 2 Cor 12:1-7].  Yes, this is indeed so.  And all that has come forth from God returns to Him in the same way and gives Him perfect glory.  Now I have seen the way in which I adore God; oh, how miserable it is!  And what a tiny drop it is in comparison to that perfect heavenly glory.  O my God, how good You are to accept my praise as well, and to turn Your Face to me with kindness and let us know that our prayer is pleasing to You.
