Excerpt from Little Talks to Children Preparing for Holy Communion
We do not see God, because as the Gate chism tells you, He is a spirit, the most pure spirit, and, therefore, we cannot see Him with the eyes of our body. If you go into a room which is entirely dark, you do not see any thing in it. It may be full of things, such as tables, chairs and other furniture, pictures on the walls, and although. You have eyes, you cannot see them or anything else in it. Why? Because there is no light in that dark room. Turn on the light, and you can see everything in it. We cannot now see God, because we need some other light besides our reason and the light we have on earth to see God. We shall be able to see God in heaven, after our death, if we are good and pure dur ing life, for the pure of heart shall see God.
