Gospel: Luke 20:27–40
“For to Him all are alive.” (cf. Luke 20:38)
In today’s Gospel, Jesus testified to the truth of Resurrection by wisely answering the intricate question of skeptical Sadducees. “He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
Resurrection is a vital truth of our faith. And though we believe that it is the ultimate destination of our lives, it is not only about the afterlife but also about our life of the here and now. When we live with Him as a living God, then in makes a difference how live each day of our lives – our choices and decisions.
As Christians we believe in the promise of the Resurrection through the course of our faithful journey. May we be faithful to opt for this Resurrected life in our Christian lives.
