Resurrection and Touching the Mystery of Life

Let us shine the light on what we fear – and find Resurrection where we least expect it

There is a certain fear of death that comes from not having lived yet. I had to face it myself when I had cancer a few years ago. I don’t think I was afraid of death at that time, but I also knew I had already lived. Once you know you have touched upon this mystery of life, you are not afraid of death. There is an existential terror about losing what you’ve never found. Something in me says, “I haven’t done ‘it’ yet.” I haven’t experienced the stream of life yet. I haven’t touched the real, the good, the true, and the beautiful—which is, of course, what we were created for.
