Father Livio: “When the Figure of this World Has Passed Away”


The Solemnity of All Saints and the commemoration of the faithful departed illuminates the month of November with the light of eternity.

To the question that rises spontaneously from the human heart regarding the meaning of death, the Church responds with faith in eternal life. Today more than ever we need to witness to the faith of the victory of life over death because many seem to have resigned themselves to the “mortality” that afflicts their lives and to thinking that death “ends everything”.

This is a nihilistic conception of life, reducing it to a fleeting and random phenomenon destined to disappear. Christians, however, believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the center and heart of our faith, knowing that we are united to him now and will be eternally, even when the figure of this world has passed. On the feastday of the saints our eyes are opened to the joy of heaven, where shines the heavenly Jerusalem, the joyful goal of our journey through time.

In the celebration of the faithful departed our hearts are opened to love and we pray for our brothers and sisters who are being purified as they await their entry into Paradise. These are joyful days during which we must lift our gaze beyond the confines of finitude, beyond the ephemeral that clouds our view, to rediscover the strength to continue our holy pilgrimage, to reach the goal that God has prepared for us where we are awaited by our loved ones who have preceded us.

Yours truly, Fr. Livio
