"All the just are to rise in glory, but each one in his own degree of perfection. 'For, one is the glory of the sun, another the glory of the moon, and another the glory of the stars. For stars differeth from star in glory. So, also, in the resurrection of the dead.' ... it follows that the more completely we have mortified our inordinate passions, and made our life conformable to that of Jesus Christ, the more also of personal beauty and splendour shall we possess in Heaven; and consequently, the more of Heaven's happiness shall we enjoy.
"These attributes of personal beauty and perfection and elevation to a high position in Heaven, are the very marks by which we shall immediately recognise those who have been most holy, and who have done most for God in this world." Fr. J. Boudreau, The Happiness of Heaven
