Dealing with death…

I attended the Mass for my neighbor yesterday. As the priest read the words from Jesus’ account before the grave of his friend Lazarus, I was reminded that when the Almighty Lord of Glory saw his friends’ grave, He Wept.1 He wept as a human. They were true tears, tears of grief and sadness as sin conquered one more. But yet, the Christ who wept is the Christ who raises in glory and exaltation the dead at the last day.2 All those who are His will come and death will be no more.
