(St. Leo the Great, Pope and Doctor of the Church)
“the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace.” Wis_2:23–3:9
The Souls of the just! We have no fear of death, beloved. For our very lives are in the hands of God. No harm can touch us. These are good thoughts, both for our loved ones who have passed from this world to the next, and for ourselves. For death is not an end but a transition from one existence to a better one. A life eternal with God! And what better life could there possibly be!
