<br> NEW RELEASE!- FREE SHIPPING!  HOPE TO DIE - SCOTT HAHN


 

Our bodies have been made by a God who loves us. Even in death, those bodies point to the mystery of our salvation.

In Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body, Scott Hahn explores the significance of death and burial from a Catholic perspective. The promise of the bodily resurrection brings into focus the need for the dignified care of our bodies at the hour of death. Unpacking both Scripture and Catholic teaching, Hope to Die reminds us that we are destined for glorification on the last day.

As Catholics, we believe in the resurrection of the body. We profess it in our creed. We're taught that to bury and pray for the dead are corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We honor the dead in our Liturgy through the Rite of Christian burial. We do all of this, and more, because when Jesus Christ took on flesh for the salvation of our souls he also bestowed great dignity on our bodies.

Description
 
“Hope to Die reminds us that we are made for glory, for eternity in the beautiful city of God. I pray that it will lead many to seek to grow in holiness and love and to know that we are a people made for heaven.” Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles

This book could not have arrived at a better time. A beautiful reminder of what our lives and bodies are truly intended for, which is eternal life forever with Jesus Christ.
I highlighted many parts of the book but one of my favorite excerpts was this powerful reflection:
“In Holy Communion, he enters into our mortal bodies so that we, in turn, can enter into his immortal, glorified body.”
