I have come to understand that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that is yet to come.
—Rom 8:18

Reflection. True love involves pain. In order to give birth, a mother has to suffer, but glory follows pain.

Death is not extinguishing the light, it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.
—Rabindranath Tagore

Prayer. Lord, when my time comes help me to accept it peacefully. Be my escort into heaven so that I will not be afraid.
