.- During a Mass celebrated for those who gave their lives for the country, Bishop Antonio Baseotto of the Argentinean Military Diocese said the truth about death and about our faith in the resurrection “should be the cornerstone for measuring our values.”
“To remember the end of our days is without doubt, an expression of health wisdom, which the simple and humble also teach us,” he told the faithful gathered at the Stella Maris Cathedral.
Bishop Baseotto recalled that often “we are willing to sacrifice our conscience for a promotion, a new job, or greater economic or social status.”
He emphasized that life has “a definitive end,” and therefore “the feast of All Souls should provide those of us who still journey through time an opportunity to reflect.”
Before concluding, he prayed that this journey “would truly be a time of training, of preparation and apprenticeship for that life which as no end.” Inasmuch as we are guided by Christ, he said, “We journey towards His same end and the same goal.”
