Every new beginning…

From the last line of the song “Closing Time” by Semisonic,

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

Life is full of little transitions, little deaths and rebirths. What stays the same? What dies? What is transformed?

It is the Paschal Mystery, the mystery of the Cross.

What do you get to take through the ultimate transition, from final death into birth of new life in heaven?
