would seem a kind of death. But immediately after birth the child would find itself in
loving arms, showered with affection and cared for at every moment. Surely the baby
would say, “I was foolish to doubt God’s Plan for me. This is a beautiful life.”
For the Christian, passing through death is really a birth into a new and better world.
Those who are left behind should not grieve as if there were no hope. Life is changed,
not taken away. Our dear ones, having been faithful to Christ, live on, in a world
beautiful beyond anything we can imagine. With Jesus and Mary they await the day
when they will welcome us with joy. “Do not grieve too much,” they say to us. “We are
living and are still with you.”
