Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices, my body, too, abides in confidence; Because you will not abandon my soul to the nether world, nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption. (Psalm 16:9-10)
As I finish the joy of the celebration of Easter Sunday, today’s Responsorial Psalm 16 gives me great hope in my own resurrection. But even more importantly, the foundress of EWTN, Mother Angelica, went to her eternal rest on Easter Sunday. I envision her with Jesus and Mother Mary whom she loved so much along with thousands of Saints whom she talked with and about often. I loved Mother Angelica. She was such a great inspiration to me and such a big part of my faith formation.
I look at Mother Angelica’s passing with great joy. She lived her life for this moment and has taught me to do the same, not to fear death but to live for life eternally. And to reiterate the Psalm, “my heart is glad and my soul rejoices, my body, too, abides in confidence.” Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless glory! Amen.
