Friends of the Rosary:
The truth of the Resurrection and life everlasting, which is central to our faith, has few mentions in the Old Testament. Moreover, many followers of the Law of the Prophets believed that the end of earthly life was the end of our human existence. Only a few passages sensed that the Resurrection was part of the history of salvation.
Yesterday, in the first Sunday reading, in the book of Maccabees (2 Mc 7:1-2, 9-14) we heard about it. Heroically, seven brothers accepted martyrdom.
One of the brothers, speaking for the others, said: “You are depriving us of this present life, but the King of the world will raise us up to live again forever.”
And he added, in a serious warning to the wicked who tortured and maltreated them, “It is my choice to die at the hands of men with the hope God gives of being raised up by him; but for you, there will be no resurrection to life.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
All Saints, Pray for Us!
