Stand firm in the hope of the Resurrection

Bring out the gift of reason God has stored in our hearts.  Then when troubles surround us, we will remember that we are only human, and as we have already seen and heard, that life is full of misfortunes…Above all, reason will tell us according to God’s command that we who trust Christ shouldn’t grieve over those who have died.  For we hope in the Resurrection and in great crowns which the Master has stored to reward our great patience.  We must allow our wiser thoughts to speak to us in this melody.  Then perhaps we might experience slight relief from our troubles.  I urge you to stand firm, even if the blow is a heavy one.
