Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. Johnson Joseph Thurackal CMF

Life beyond life is a puzzle for many and scorn to some of our contemporaries. Like the Sadducees they aim to restrict everything to worldly eyes and to the limits of intelligence.  Such attitudes have their reflection in the way one treats life and things of this world. The question of resurrection and eternal life goes beyond human logic and categories. Scripture and God’s revelation guide us to trust in God’s infinite ways.  God loves us and His friendship with us does not end with death, but he desires to share with us his life and joy for all eternity. Jesus’s resurrection is the ultimate proof of life that will never end, and he said, “I am the resurrection and life.” St. Paul summarizes his conviction in these words: “No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him.”
