Last of all the woman died. On the day of the resurrection, to which of them will the woman be a wife? For all seven had her as a wife.”
And Jesus replied, “Taking a husband or a wife is proper to people of this world, but for those who are considered worthy of the world to come, and of resurrection from the dead, there is no more marriage. Besides, they cannot die, for they are like the angels. They are sons and daughters of God, because they are born of the resurrection.
Yes, the dead will be raised, as Moses revealed at the burning bush, when he called the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. For God is God of the living, and not of the dead, for to him everyone is alive.”
READ: He is God of the living and not of the dead.
REFLECT: During many centuries the people of the Old Testament did not know that after death we experience an eternity of bliss with God. How fortunate we are to know better!
PRAY: Let us thank God for having revealed to us what unimaginable glory awaits us.
ACT: Today let us celebrate in advance the moment of our eternal reunion with God.
