Pope Francis reflects on the Christian understanding of death

Pope Francis continued his series of catechesis on St. Joseph, who he called the patron saint of a happy death. He said that although thinking of death is typically avoided Christians must “accept it with trust in Christ’s promises.”

“In faith,” he continued, “we see death as a part of life and in turn see life itself in a different perspective.”

The Pope also reiterated the Church’s concern for the dying and its commitment to life, while “rejecting the ethically unacceptable practices of euthanasia or assisted suicide.”

SUMMARY OF THE POPE’S CATECHESIS IN ENGLISH:

In our continuing catechesis on Saint Joseph, we now consider him as the patron of a happy death. This traditional devotion was born of the Church’s meditation on Joseph’s own death, comforted by the presence of the Blessed Mother and the Lord Jesus.

Today we tend to avoid the thought of our own death, yet our faith in the Risen Jesus invites us not only to be unafraid of death, but to accept it with trust in Christ’s promises.

In faith, we see death as a part of life and in turn see life itself in a different perspective. Since we will carry nothing with us to the grave, our concern should be to live lives of faith, hope and charity towards all.

The Church has always shown particular concern for the dying, offering them accompaniment and care, respecting the sacredness of life, even in its final stages, and rejecting the ethically unacceptable practices of euthanasia or assisted suicide.

Through the prayers of Saint Joseph and the Virgin Mary, may the hour of our own death be a blessed encounter with God’s infinite mercy. For that intention, and for all the dying and those who grieve the loss of their loved ones, we joined earlier in praying the “Hail Mary.”

I welcome all the English-speaking pilgrims taking part in today’s Audience, especially the representatives of the Global Christian Forum and the seminarians and student groups from the United States of America. Upon all of you, and your families, I invoke the joy and peace of Jesus our Lord. God bless you!
