Sunday, June 5, 2016:
Jesus said: “My people, (Jn 11:25, 26) ‘I am the Resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me, even if he dies, shall live; and whoever lives and believes in Me, shall never die.’ I said this to Martha as I was about to raise Lazarus from the dead. In today’s Gospel I also raised a man from the dead, who was the only son of a widow. When I died on the cross, I conquered death, and I offered My life to save all of mankind from their sins. I resurrected from the dead Myself, to prove that death had no power over Me. I granted this gift of bringing people back from the dead to Elijah and St. Peter in other Scripture passages. Death is another consequence of Adam’s sin, but if you are faithful to Me in My Commandments, you all will be resurrected with Me in heaven at the last judgment. So do not be afraid of death and the evil ones, because I have conquered them. Peace be with you, as My angels will protect you.”
