A Christian View of Death
We picture death as coming to destroy; Let us rather see it as Christ coming to serve. We think of death as ending; Rather think of it as a new life beginning. We think of it as losing; Rather let us think of it as winning a final victory. We think of death as parting; Rather think of it as meeting of love ones. We think of death as going away; Rather think of it as arriving home at last. Death is not extinguishing the light…. It is putting out the lamp because the day, the eternal day has dawn.
Lord/ help us to see death for what it truly is/ the end of poverty and the
beginning of riches/ the end of frustration and the beginning of fulfillment/ the end of fear and the beginning of peace/ the end o f weakness and the beginning of strength/ the end of pains and hurts and the beginning of joy and love. O Lord Jesus/ whose rich and unforgettable life/ was lived in the faith/ that the love which surrounds us/ is a real dependable as that of a father/ let the same sense of trust and hope steady us at this time. Let not grief overwhelm us/ or a sense of loss embi tter us/ but out of our sadness/ let there arise a new joy for so much given to us. Help us to see/ that what we love becomes a part of us/ interfused within our lives/ blended with mind and memory/ hollowed forever within our soul/ let not take away our hope. Or bereavement blind us/ to what always remains good and lovely and indestructible. O gracious Spirit of Peace/ come alive within our experience and hurt/ within our sorrow and isolation/ within the sadness of today and the loneliness of tomorrow/come alive as the peace and trust/ which nothing in life or death can kill. Cast out our fears/ and let not our hearts be troubled/ k nowing that this world remains our Father’s house. Leader: O God our Father/ from whom we came a nd to whom we return/ let us
be convinced by the sight of earth/ that is only the body which dies and corrupts/ but the more important half of a person/ his spirit and soul/ by which he thinks and loves/ is not touched by death/ but transfer to a new and endless life beyond the grave. So now/ O Lord/ help us believe that our beloved________/ is indeed just “departed” to a better world/ where at this moment he/she is alive/ is conscious and full of love for e ach of us/ and awaits our coming one by one! ALL: Farewell dear TATAY. Pray for us as we pray for you. Until we are together again and home at last! In the name of the Father/ and of the Son/ and of the Holy Spirit/ AMEN
