New York, St. Margaret, 5th August 2007
Dear Brother and Sisters! Dear Family!
I would like to say just one word.
In the name of Jesus Christ and his gospel, in the name of our faith.
Be sure: our sister has not finished her life. She didn’t die. Not at all. What we see is only an appearance of the end. What we see is only the necessity of our body. If we want to live for ever we must leave this earthly body. If we want to live in the heaven we have to leave the house on the earth.
Jesus says: “In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?”
Jesus says: “I am the resurrection and the life whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die”.
Jesus says: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever”.
It’s nothing strange that we are sad, we cry, that we let our hearts be troubled. Even Jesus cried when he saw the death of his friend Lazarus.
Jesus understands our feelings, but against all doubts and all feelings Jesus, who takes today our sister in his arms, he is speaking to us: “I’m the resurrection and the life. They who come to me shall never die”.
We thank you today for your life.
We thank you for your faith. We thank you and we pray for you.
If you need our prayer so that Jesus can purify you from all your sins, accept this gift from us.
If you are just purified, pray for us, so that we never cease to believe in Jesus Christ, who is the resurrection and the life.
