Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
The rich man died and was buried. ‘In his torment in Hades he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off with Lazarus in his bosom.
“Father Abraham, I beg you then to send Lazarus to my father’s house, since I have five brothers, to give them warning so that they do not come to this place of torment too.”
“They have Moses and the prophets,” said Abraham “let them listen to them..”
“Ah no, father Abraham,” said the rich man “but if someone comes to them from the dead, they will repent.”
Then Abraham said to him, “If they will not listen either to Moses or to the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone should rise from the dead.”’
Luke 16: 22-23, 27-31
