    TO MARY WILLIS SHELBURNE: On how to rehearse for death and how to diminish fear.

    C. S. LEWIS DAILY - SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 2018

    17 June 1963

    Pain is terrible, but surely you need not have fear as well? Can you not see death as the friend and deliverer? It means stripping off that body which is tormenting you: like taking off a hair- shirt or getting out of a dungeon. What is there to be afraid of? You have long attempted (and none of us does more) a Christian life. Your sins are confessed and absolved. Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave it with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.

    Remember, though we struggle against things because we are afraid of them, it is often the other way round—we get afraid be- cause we struggle. Are you struggling, resisting? Don’t you think Our Lord says to you ‘Peace, child, peace. Relax. Let go. Underneath are the everlasting arms. Let go, I will catch you. Do you trust me so little?’

    Of course, this may not be the end. Then make it a good rehearsal.

    Yours (and like you a tired traveller near the journey’s end) Jack
