Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
Last Monday I offered the Holy sacrifice of the Mass at Calvary Cemetery in Springfield for Memorial Day, a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. Since, in a sense, there is no recognition here on earth that is sufficient to honor our dead soldiers for their brave sacrifices, we might ask, what kind of reward awaits them in heaven? This question leads us to reflect on what awaits each one of us when we die.
