In Death...he was a saint
I wonder why anyone who dies is automatically made into a Saint. It amazes me that even the most vile, abusive, and mean spirited people here on earth become Saints once they pass on. I guess it's human nature, the feeling that everyone wants a happy ending and wants a pleasant end to the story of their lives. If they had only lived their lives worthy of a saint, just imagine the high regard that everyone would have for them in the end. So, for today, I suggest we all work to be better here, to guide ourselves with a mantra of respect, knowing that in the end we look forward to meeting our creator and wanting to be able to stand before him with a clear conscience and listening for the words, well done my faithful servant. In the interim let's pray for God's grace for the others.
