An Innumerable Multitude

Periodically, in Catholic circles, there is an ongoing discussion about how many may end up in heaven or elsewhere. With that in mind, I was struck by this weekend's Sunday Mass reading from Revelation Chapter 7:

(Douay-Rheims Bible)
After this I saw a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and tribes, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, and in sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands:

Revelation 7:9.
