From Death Comes Life

TOBI easter video

Why does death and decay so horrify us?

Why do our hearts restlessly seek immortality, everlasting peace, enduring joy and beauty?

In this Easter message from the Theology of the Body Institute, Dr Christopher West shares powerfully about his experience at the death bed of his sister. And, drawing on the reflections of Pope Benedict XVI, he frames the mystery of the death and resurrection of Christ within human longing for the infinite.


From Christopher: We don’t want to look at this. We don’t want to face this. And the “this” I’m talking about is death. Pope Benedict XVI says, “There are certain moments we experience that should last forever, and the fact that they don’t,” he says, “is the great sadness of human life.”
