Hey Eileen,
not all of the post came through here's the other half:

God through Christ has taken the sting from death
by freeing us from its dominion.
Our earthly life is a prelude
to a glorious new awakening,
and death is an open door
that leads us into eternal life.

The Christian faith makes it possible for us
to nobly except that which cannot be changed,
to meet disappoint and sorrow with an inner poise,
and to absorb the most intense pain
without abandoning our sense of hope,
for we know, as Paul testified

"In life or in death,
in Spain or in Rome,
that all things work together for good
to them that love God
to them who are the called..."
