“On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:7-8).
Reflection: God did not make death. He hates it, and in fact has fulfilled this ancient promise of Isaiah through the death and resurrection of Christ, by which he destroyed death and made us the People of Life. Those who continue God’s work in the world therefore fight against the lingering power of death’s kingdom, in whatever form it takes.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the hope and joy of this promise that you gave through Isaiah and fulfilled in Christ. Amen.
