After every death there is life

“Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”

John 12:24

In every death, there is life – this is the main message of Lent and of Easter.

The grain of wheat will die and will through death nourish us with food. Likewise, in the death of relationships, of health, of faith and all that may be dear to us there is always the invitation to deeper life.

In the death of our ability to move around freely is the invitation to be innovative using technology and other means to reach our loved ones and to work.

And in our final death is the call to everlasting life.


Dear God, thank you for the invitation to share in Your death in order that I may have new life now and life everlasting after death. Amen.
