regarding
THE MEANING OF
ABRAHAM'S BOSOM.


Q. 1. What does the term "Abraham's bosom" mean?

A. 1. This term was used by Saint Luke [Lk 16:22] to describe the abode (dwelling place) of the just persons who died in the Old Testament, before they were admitted to the beatific vision. In patristic literature it often means heaven. It implies a return of Abraham's spiritual descendants to the embrace of the earthly father of all the faithful.
