This illness is not to end in death

“When Jesus heard this he said, ‘This illness is not to end in death, but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.’” (JN 11: 4)

In these days, when people are dying because of coronavirus, it is good to remember, that our lives are not “ending in death,” but “for the glory of God.” We are called to live with God in heaven forever. Death is not the end, it is actually a new beginning. It is good to remember:

“I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will never die.” (Gospel Acclamation)
