% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

From the Breviary according to the use of the Roman Curia, 1529, the continuation of the sermon for the seventh day in the Octave of All Saints.

No voice sufficeth to speak of the King who presideth over this city, and who exceedeth every created sense. For so great is the beauty of justice, so great the happiness of eternal light, that is, of unchanging truth and wisdom, that if it were permitted to see it for the space of a single day, for the sake of such a vision alone, numberless years of this life, and they full of delights and abundance of temporal goods, would be disdained. Let us aspire, therefore, unto this happiness, which is to behold God face to face, to be fulfilled with His sweetness without satiation, that we may always wish to have what we have forever, and enjoy the vision of Him without ending in perpetual possession.

The Beatific Vision – from the Hours of Étienne Chevalier, 1452-60
