Indeed, extreme materialism, which regards death as the end point of life, is opposed to the Christian faith and its expression or experience in the Orthodox Church, through a scriptural, liturgical, ascetic, and spiritual tradition, adding as a wind that brings hope.

However, in the death of Christ, death shapes a face, of the Risen One, which makes his approach more bearable. It is the image of a new beginning. Of course, the pain and suffering of death is real. The lack of those close to us causes a sadness that is good to recognize and respect.

Metropolitan Emanuel of France
