REFLECTION

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could get a glimpse of heaven before we die? Our worldly attachments would fade and our determination to live a life pleasing to God would grow. Although we will never know what heaven is like until we get there, we can put our faith in what Jesus tells the Sadduccees. While he provides only a small glimpse into the resurrected life, He leaves no doubt that “the dead will rise” (Luke 20:35,37). So even without knowing more we can place our hope in the reality of the resurrection and develop a true longing for the life that Christ has promised us. As you place your hope in the life to come, your problems will shrink in size and your hardships will become easier to bear. Death isn't the end for us, therefore we too can have courage like the seven sons in today’s first reading, to keep our eyes fixed on our eternal destiny. Today let us ask God to give us a deep longing for heaven, one that casts away fear and brings lasting hope and peace.
