Lk 9, 7-9

Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was greatly perplexed because some were saying, "John has been raised from the dead"; others were saying, "Elijah has appeared"; still others, "One of the ancient prophets has arisen."

But Herod said, "John I beheaded. Who then is this about whom I hear such things?" And he kept trying to see him.


What is eternal happiness?

Eternal happiness is seeing God and being taken up into God's happiness. (1720-1724, 1729)

In God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit there is unending life, joy, and communion. To be taken up into it will be an incomprehensible, infinite happiness for us men. This happiness is the pure gift of God's grace, for we men can neither bring it about ourselves nor comprehend it in its magnitude. God would like us to decide in favor of our happiness; we should choose God freely, love him above all things, do good and avoid evil insofar as we are able.

Jesus promised his disciples three things, that they would experience complete fearlessness, absurd happiness and constant tribulation.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton
(1874-1936, English writer and journalist)
