|souls in heaven
Question from lt on 12-28-2012:
You wrote about degrees in heaven and some being able to be closer to God. My father passed away and I believe he has passed purgatory and is now in heaven. If I continue praying for his soul, will he get closer to God in heaven?

No. The degree of happiness we experience in Heaven is based upon our degree of
charity! Which is fixed forever at the moment the soul departs the body. Father Echert
