The scriptures remind us that we are pilgrims on a journey. We do not belong to this world. Heaven is our true homeland and we must acquire it by God's grace and our own good works. We shouldn't seek after too much happiness in this world because before we know it the time will come for us to leave it. We must prepare for eternal life now.

When we keep death before our eyes we learn to despise the goods of this world. We live well when keep in mind our last day. God has prepared for us a home with Him in heaven. We must use this life to make ourselves ready!

In Christ,

Father Jeff Fasching
