By His Death and Rising from the Dead, Christ Jesus broke the bonds of death.
Today we celebrate that death does not end all for us. We join in honoring members of the body of Christ dead on earth but living in Glory with God in Heaven.
Tomorrow we honor and pray for the members of the Church who while we see as dead, are living in the hope of heaven, awaiting their final purification so they may see God face to Face.
The Mystical Body of Christ is united to Christ in all three states, Us the Church Militant, the Church Suffering, and The Church Glorious in heaven. These two days unite us and allow us to celbrate that death thanks to Christ Jesus does not end it all. Nor does it end our relationship to each other.
