|Merry Cemetery ~ Romania|
Someone sent some pictures taken around the world of amazingly beautiful places, and this Romanian cemetery was among them. The photo caption called it the Merry Cemetery. I don't know if that's its name in Romania or if someone just attached that title somewhere along the cyber-space-way. It doesn't matter ~ the cemetery is indeed merry. Happy. Gladsome. Joyful. But why?
Christ is Risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death,
and upon those in the tomb,
Trampling down death by death. Isn't that a wonderful line? November is the Month of the Holy Souls. We might rehearse the little Easter verse again and again until we have memorized it. We can then bring it to mind often but especially when we remember loved ones departed or are confronted with news reports of television, radio, Internet death.
