But the souls of the virtuous are in the hands of God,
no torment shall ever touch them.
In the eyes of the unwise, they did appear to die,
their going looked like a disaster,
their leaving us, like annihilation;
but they are in peace.

As we approach the end of the Church's year we are encouraged to to look up and on to end times.  Not only end times but the end of our time, our eventual death.  Death is where the Church has supreme insight.  What to an unbeliever looks like a disaster, to a believer is the triumphant goal finally attained. 

There is a great peace offered to me today in knowing death is a victory not defeat.  It also sharpens my purpose, if one were needed, for being virtuous.  Death for me will be a time of simply changing uniform from the armies of Church Militant to Church Triumphant.

Thank you Jesus for the promise of eternal life with You.  Holy Spirit, help me be a virtuous man.
Lttle Flower, please pray for me.
