Going to our destiny

editorial Jesus handCoconut husks are destined to float. So are the stones to sink because everything on earth has its destiny.

For example, the month of November allows us to meditate on the last things. And what are those ‘last things?’ Our Catechism tells us that the last things speak of the destiny of individuals. These are: death, judgment, heaven or hell, and the second coming of Jesus. Our destiny is that after death we will rise again. Jesus rose from the dead, thus promising us also life after death.

Believers have no reason to fear. St. Peter writes, ‘So, then, let your spirit be ready. Be alert, with confidence trust in the grace you will receive when Jesus Christ appears. Like obedient children, do not return to your former life given over to ignorance and passions. Imitate the one who called you. As he is holy, so you, too, should be holy in all your conduct, since Scripture says: Be holy for I am holy’ (1 Peter 1: 13-16).

That is our destiny: to be holy for HE is holy.
