In this Summer Edition of the What is Truth Catholic Podcast, we will reflect on the readings for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time.  This will lead to us thinking about death - that God did not create death but we humans did, by our sinfulness and selfishness.

God created human death not to be feared but to be a dormition - a passing from this life to eternal life.  But we create death something to be feared and avoided at all costs.  May we trust the mercy of our Lord and live in faith, not in fear.
