25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
For Pagan religions back then, death was considered ‘the great destroyer’, and whilst they did believe in some form of after-life, it was meaningless and joyless. But in Christianity, Christ broke down that barrier between life and death. We have become workers in the vineyard, and our work will be rewarded in heaven – death will not stand in the way of this reward!!!
Furthermore, our friendship with Christ that we live here on earth through prayer, the sacraments, and our efforts to build up his Kingdom, are in actual fact the beginning of eternal life!!!
