It is impossible to enumerate the employments in the heavens, still less to describe them in detail, but something may be said about them in a general way; for they are numberless, and vary in accordance with the functions of the societies. Each society has its peculiar function, for as societies are distinct in accordance with goods (see above, n. 41), so they are distinct in accordance with uses, because with all in the heavens goods are goods in act, which are uses. Everyone there performs a use, for the Lord's kingdom is a kingdom of uses.#
# The Lord's kingdom is a kingdom of uses (n. 454, 696, 1103, 3645, 4054, 7038).
Performing uses is serving the Lord (n. 7038).
In the other life all must perform uses (n. 1103); even the wicked and infernal, but in what manner (n. 696).
All are such as are the uses they perform (n. 4054, 6815); illustrated (n. 7038).
Angelic blessedness consists in the goods of charity, that is, in performing uses (n. 454).
