Commentary on the Gospel of
Death is not the final destination but a passage everyone must traverse to be born into eternal life. Through death, we encounter the Lord, and Jesus says that he will never drive away whoever comes to him so that none will be lost. What awaits all us after our earthly life is still a mystery, but we can by now begin living our future when we live with Jesus. Let us not wait for the inevitable time when we have to go and meet the Lord because even now, we can welcome him into our life.
