According to this view the blessed can move about freely in every part of the universe, and still remain with God and see everywhere.Everywhere, too, they remain with Christ (in His sacred Humanity) and with the saints and the angels.This subject will be treated under seven headings: I. Eternity of Heaven and Impeccability of the Blessed; V. The Latin coelum ( koilon , a vault) is derived by many from the root of celare "to cover, to conceal" ( coelum , "ceiling" "roof of the world"). Supernatural Character of Heaven and the Beatific Vision; IV. Others trace a connection between himin (heaven) and home ; according to this view, which seems to be the more probable, heaven would be the abode of the Godhead.

With God in heaven are likewise the souls of the just ( 2 Corinthians 5:1 ; Matthew 5:3, 12 ). , we are told that Christ conducted to heaven the patriarchs who had been in limbo ( limbus patrum ).Hence there seems to be no sufficient reason for attributing a metaphorical sense to those numerous utterances of the Bible which suggest a definite dwelling-place of the blessed.Theologians, therefore, generally hold that the heaven of the blessed is a special place with definite limits.On the immediate beginning of eternal happiness after death, or eventually, after the passage through purgatory, see PARTICULAR JUDGMENT.The existence of heaven is, of course, denied by atheists, materialists, and pantheists of all centuries as well as by those rationalists who teach that the soul perishes with the body — in short, by all who deny the existence of God or the immortality of the soul.

We shall give a brief outline of the principal arguments. That the vision of God is supernatural can also be shown from the supernatural character of sanctifying grace (Denz., n. 901); for, if the preparation for that vision is supernatural.
