More friends, more understanding

Friendship exhibits a glorious “nearness by resemblance” to Heaven itself where the very multitude of the blessed (which no man can number) increases the fruition which each as of God. For every soul, seeing Him in her own way, doubtless communicates that unique vision to all the rest.isaiah That, says an old author, is why the Seraphim in Isaiah’s vision are crying “Holy, Holy, Holy” to one another (Isaiah 6:3). The more we thus share the Heavenly Bread between us, the more we shall all have.
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves (1960; Harcourt Brace: 1991) 62.

  1. Reminds me of the Monty Python sketch where God is sitting on a fire hydrant and the angels and the saint are constantly circling around Him singing and saying Holy, Holy,Holy for all eternity and one person says this is going to get very boring. Of course we know that won't be the case but I know people who feel just that way, Christianty is boring. Gary
