Death Anniversary MessageA young and Diplomatic Parish Priest one day was putting his parishioners in owe and wonder when he was preaching about our 'Temporary life on earth'. In his sermon he said "some of us will go to heaven and some to hell". After the mass a child asked him, "Father, why some people go to heaven and some go to hell?" The father replied " It is because people are busy making chains while living on this earth."
All of us have to die one day or the other and death can knock the door at any time, thus our job is to prepare. In this world some people die and they die forever while there are some people who die but continue to live. They continue to live because they have build a chain not of hared and greed but of love and generosity. It is said, "great men seldom die they live on for generation". They die like you and me yet they live. They live in their kindness they have shown to people. They live in their love they have shown to their neighbours, they live in their deeds they have done and furthermore they live in many hearts they have won.
Death Anniversary remind us that we shall one day pass away. However as the proverb goes "Death is not the greatest loss in life, the greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live". Therefore strive so that in the hour of our death we may not fear of death but rather rejoice.
