Blessed Andre Bessette: "whoever is begotten by God conquers the world"

... And the victory that conquers the world is our faith.
-- 1 Jn 4:19–5:4

The name one receives is a name for eternity. In the kingdom, the mysterious and unique character of each person marked with God's name will shine forth in splendor. "To him who conquers . . . I will give a white stone, with a new name written on the stone which no one knows except him who receives it." "Then I looked, and Lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him a hundred and forty- four thousand who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads."
-- CCC 2159
