land of the living

Brothers and sister: None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For this is why Christ died. and came to life, that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living.

For life I choose thee now,

My arm, my forehead, face;

Triumph of the Cross, St. Louis de Montfort – Stanza XXIX
