What is Eternal Life?

“…… eternity is not an unending succession of days in the calendar, but something more like the supreme moment of satisfaction, in which totality embraces us and we embrace totality…… It would be like plunging into the ocean of infinite love, a moment in which time–the before and after–no longer exists. We can only attempt to grasp the idea that such a moment is life in the full sense, a plunging ever anew into the vastness of being, in which we are simply overwhelmed by joy.”

Pope Benedict XVI, Spe Salvi, 12.
