For to Him all are alive

“That the dead will rise even Moses made known in the passage about the bush, when he called ‘Lord’ the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.” (LK 20: 37-38)

Our God “is not God of the dead, but of the living” says the Gospel today, which brings consolation to our hearts when we suffer the loss of somebody who was so close to us. It could be a spouse, parent, child, sibling or a friend, someone who was part of our lives and now their place is empty; they are physically missing. God’s word assures us—“for to Him all are alive,” and so for us they should be also. Our separation is temporary. In Him we “will rise.”

“Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
