The scene was reminiscent of those 'spleandour' pictures of heaven meeting earth. I was aware of a beauty beyond all physical senses, and for a while I thought of Elizabeth of the Trinity. Still a young woman in 1906, she knew the time was near when her then incurable illness would lead her into eternal realms. She wrote to her sister, I am sure that you will rejoice at my first meeting with Divine Beauty ... the Lord .... then to spend my eternity in the Trinity which is already my dwelling-place here below.
I thought about heaven - and the Divine Beauty. I imagined myself there - lost with loved ones - in the vast, countless crowd - as more and more the numbers swelled. I saw the smiles and heard the laughter of children no longer hungry; the relieved faces of war victims made free; of refugees now at home .... all overwhelmed by the beauty. Surely many of them had never had opportunity to glimpse this through Jesus in their time on earth ... and I had not told them! I pray there may be many called to prepare others for the Divine Beauty of The Trinity. They are all welcomed through the grace of God.
