This call to life wasn’t meant just for the young man in the coffin. The call is meant for us too. In our lives, God is constantly bringing newness of life from what is passing away. We die to our fears so that trust in God can be born. We die to selflessness so that love can be born. And finally we die to life in this world so that we can die into resurrected life. You can see the
pattern here. God is always at work, bringing a resurgence of life for us from what has gone before. It brings us joy when we reflect on how God has done this for us all through our lives.
Lord, may I not be afraid to let go of what must pass away. Fill me with the faith and trust that can only come from you.
Fr. Kenneth E. Grabner, C.S.C.
