God Did Not Make Death
by Bishop Robert Barron . July 1, 2018 .
The Book of Wisdom offers us the strange assertion that God did not make death, for he formed humanity to be imperishable. This revelation directs us towards the truth that death is much more than merely the dissolution of the body; it is the full impact of the power of sin over our lives. This power is especially evident in our fear of death. The dormition of the Mother of God offers us a sign that Christ has given to humanity a way that takes us not only beyond our fear of death but beyond death itself. The way of Christ enables us to face the power of death with trust rather than fear.

Friends, I'd like to share with you this video from our annual Virgen de Guadalupe procession and prayer service in Santa Barbara, California. As you watch and share this video, please also pray for the good people of my pastoral region as the fires continue to blaze across Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. And may the kindness and comfort of the Mother of God, Our Lady of Guadalupe, be with us all today and every day.
