“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns.” (Revelation 19:6).
Hallelujah is not a mere liturgic command, like a prelude to something exuberant. It is a crucial exercise that teaches us not only how to live but also how to die. Blessed is the one who is able to die in the spirit of Hallelujah, who can render the soul without hesitation or trepidation.
Hallelujah seems a good skill to have when the moment of the final letting go is at hand.
