Christian Community observes 'All Souls Day'

All the Christians across the world today observed ‘All Souls Day’, a day on which people memorize their loved ones who have passed from this world.

In many countries, people attend churches, and visit family graves to honor their ancestors. People decorate the graves of their deceased loved ones and light candles in their memory.

The Biblical View of Death

Throughout human history, people have refused to accept the finality that death brings to life. Death brings an unacceptable, sudden interruption to one’s work, plans, and relationships. Though, the inscription on many tomb stones often reads ‘Rest in Peace’, the truth of the matter is that most people do not welcome the peaceful rest of the grave. They would rather be alive and productive.

Thus, it is not surprising that the subject of death and afterlife always has been a matter of intense concern and speculation. After all, the death rate is still one per person. Each of us at the appointed time will face the grim reality of death.

Belief in the survival of the soul

The belief in some form of life after death has been held in practically every society. The need for reassurance and certainty in the light of the challenge that death poses to human life has led people in every culture to formulate beliefs in some form of afterlife.

Thus, the Christian Community from all across Udaipur visited the cemetery and prayed for the ones who left them for this world.
