Our True Birth

Death is meant to be our true birth, our beginning. Christianity, in contrast to paganism, always blesses her children’s spiritual birth into eternity; in the liturgy, the day on which a saint dies is called his natilitia, or birthday. The world celebrates a birthday on the day a person is born to physical life; the Church celebrates it when a person is born to eternal life.

—from Peace of Soul by Venerable Fulton Sheen, Ch. 11: Fear of Death

He went to His death, and behold, He’s alive!”
