Jesus doesn’t want us to be troubled and asks us to trust in him because he is preparing a place for us and one day he will take us with him to that place.
He is the way to that place because he says, I am the way, the truth, and the life.
The whole Easter mystery points to the gift of eternal life which is our common destiny.
21 people have died of Covid 19 in NZ and thousands of others throughout the World.
So many people are mourning the death of their loved ones.
No doubt you have been praying for all those people that they be comforted in their time of deep sorrow and loss.
Let’s remember all those who have died, and that Christ welcomes them with the fullness of life to the place prepared for them.
I would like to dedicate one of my favourite compositions ‘A Place at the Table’ from the album of the same name for those who mourn and those who have died.
