Fear of Death


Photo Leander Syrieix

Death frightens me; it paralyzes me so much that I do not dare sometimes visit relatives or acquaintances who are preparing to experience it. I have heard that it is by death that we meet you face-to-face Lord. Is it perhaps because of this slogan that death scares me so much?

I finally realize that I have so far rationalized the issue of death, that I have taken refuge behind beautiful formulas to escape and avoid this undeniable reality.

But what makes me so afraid of death? Is it all the wounds of my life like abandonment, denial, the experience of rejection in many forms, etc.? Is it because of so much harm during my life? Is it because of so much evil of which I was the author? Is it for fear of being forgotten from my relatives and people I have known? Or, is it for fear of my vision of the afterlife, for fear of being in solitude and wandering forever? Read more

Because of a Pierced Rock

On this beautiful morning of July 18, 2016, I find myself on the grounds of the chalets of “Nature Océan[1]” where I enjoy a splendid view on the “Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island[2]“. The sun is at the rendezvous and a small fresh breeze allows me to better appreciate the rays as well as the heat of the morning Gaspesian sun.

The interior and general feeling I have right now is that of gratitude for the wonders that the Trinity makes in our lives. For this unprecedented moment plunges me back into the memories of my two dives of the day before. I see all the life underwater (fauna and flora) that I contemplated, rubbed, taken photograph. I think back to the mystery of creation, to the adaptation of species in their various environments (earth, sea and air). Read more

You restore me

Fatigue streaked me so that I feel I am dying. In my body are manifested through pain, weakness, etc., symptoms of a life without Life, signs of your absence and a life in the darkness.

The diversity and intensity of daily activities that took more place in my life prevented me from Listening your call to stop; to meet with you in the silence of nature and in the depths of my interior.

The quest for the achievement at any cost of my personal goals uprooted me from this good land where formerly, I drew the necessary elements for my wellbeing. Read more

The Power of Silence

The existence cannot be imagined without silence insofar that silence is like creating a balance and makes life possible. Imagine a life in the infinite or continuous noise is meaningless. That is why the logic of life wants there to be activity time and rest time even if you no longer recourse to silence today. Anyway, silence is a passage impossible to circumvent. This is part of God’s dynamic, for God has been silent after the act of creation and rested. Christ, his Son, made silence after his Passion, as recalled in the liturgy of Holy Saturday. He descended into hell. All humanity was then immersed in the quiet, awaiting the return of LIFE, the light that enlightens all nations. Read more
