DEATH

 

 

Death, for those who understand it, is immortality; but for simpletons who do not understand it, it is death.  It is not this death that should be feared but the perdition of the soul.

St. Anthony, Philokalia

 

* * * 

 

Man is the greatest creature in that he, alone, knows he dies. No one else in creation knows this -- neither the plants nor the animals. So, when man thinks not of death, he puts himself on the level of the lower creatures.
