Fifth Week of Lent

"If death is in truth punishment, then there is something in it that ought to be...good--it cannot be entirely bad--insofar as punishment 'makes good again' and restores to order something which had been wrong....To be sure, this good is not brought about of its own accord, and not in every case; it is obtained by one who accepts in his heart the malum, the badness and bitterness, the punishment." (Josef Pieper, Death and Immortality)
