St. Robert Bellarmine - The Eternal Happiness of the Saints

"WE  may learn how important is knowledge of the kingdom of heaven from  this  circumstance, that Christ our heavenly Master began His preaching  with  these words: “Do penance, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  He also  delivered nearly all His parables concerning the kingdom of  heaven,  saying, " The kingdom of heaven is likened & c. And after  His  resurrection, during the forty days before His ascension, appearing  to  His disciples, He spoke to them of the kingdom of God, as St. Luke   mentions in the Acts of the Apostles. This kingdom therefore formed the   beginning, continuation, and end of the discourses of Christ. But I do   not intend to enter upon all the points connected with heaven, but  only  to explain those that relate to the “place and state" of the  Blessed. In  the first place, I will endeavour to show why the  “habitation” of the  blessed is called the "kingdom of heaven" in the  Holy Scriptures."
