I read this in the Magnificat's Mediation of the Day and thought to share it with you, my friends :
"The access to heaven is through desire. He who longs to there really is there in spirit. The path to heaven is measured by desire and not by miles. For this reason Saint Paul says in one of his epistles,
Although our bodies are presently on earth, our life is in heaven.
Other saints have said substantially the same thing but in different ways. They mean that love and desire constitute the life of the spirit. And the spirit abides where its love abides as surely as it abides in the body which fills with life.
Does this make any more sense to you?
We need not strain our spirit in all directions to reach heaven, for we dwell there already through love and desire."
