DEATH




DEATH IS INEVITABLE

 

God so willed it that our end should be hidden from us, that, whereas we are uncertain when we may die, we may always be found ready for death.

 

Death is inevitable, though no man wishes it. It is hard necessity not to wish that which we cannot avoid. If it were possible, we are all unwilling to die; we might even wish to be transformed immediately into angels without having to pass death. And yet, necessity demands that we should die. Why avoid it when Christ, Himself, passed through it?

 

St. Augustine
