He is indeed the God of the living. In the end, good will triumph over evil.

Today’s Gospel reading assures us that there is indeed life after death. Jesus tells us that those who are worthy will be like angels who will no longer die but will become alive as children of God. Wow, in the coming age, on the day of the resurrection of the dead, God will wipe away every tear from our eyes and there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

The promise of a new life with God in eternity gives us hope in this age of confusion and suffering. God is in control of everything. He is indeed the God of the living. In the end, good will triumph over evil.

The vision of eternal life may not be clear to us today. Saint Paul tells us that no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him. However, our faith in the resurrection of the dead is enough for us to live in joy and hope that our problems in life will have and ending and that a mansion in heaven is being prepared for us.
