Helen Burns’s death (Ch. Brontë: Jane Eyre)

"Where is God? What is God?"

"My Maker and yours, who will never destroy what He created. I rely implicitly on His power, and confide wholly in His goodness: I count the hours till that eventful one arrives which shall restore me to Him, reveal Him to me."

"You are sure, then, Helen, that there is such a place as heaven; and that our souls can get to it when we die?"

"I am sure there is a future state; I believe God is good; I can resign my immortal part to him without any misgivings. God is my father; God is my friend: I love Him; I believe He loves me."

"And shall I see you again, Helen, when I die?"

"You will come to the same region of happiness; be received by the same mighty, universal Parent, no doubt, dear Jane."

Again I questioned; but this time only in thought. “Where is that region? Does it exist?” And I clasped my arms closer around Helen; she seemed closer to me than ever; I felt as if I could not let her go; I lay with my face hidden on her neck. Presently she said in the sweetest tone,‹

"How comfortable I am! That last fit of coughing has tired me a little; I feel as if I could sleep: but don’t leave me, Jane; I like to have you near me." "I’ll stay with you, dear Helen: no one shall take me away."

"Are you warm, darling?"

"Yes."

"Good-night, Jane."

"Good-night, Helen."

She kissed me, and I her, and we both soon slumbered. (…)

… a day or two afterwards I learned that Miss Temple, on returning to her own room at dawn, had found me laid in a little crib: my face against Helen Burns’s shoulder, my arms round her neck. I was sleeping, and Helen was - dead.  

Her grave is in Brocklebridge churchyard: for fifteen years after her death it was only covered by a grassy mound; but now a grey marble tablet marks the spot, inscribed with her name, and the word ‘Resurgam’.

Surrexit Christus hodie (Hungary, 15th century)

Schola Hungarica

Surrexit Christus hodie
Humano pro solamine,

Mortem qui passus pridie
Miserrimo pro homine.

Mulieres ad tumulum
Dona ferunt aromatum,

Quaerentes Iesum dominum
Qui est salvator hominum,

Album cernentes angelum
Annuntiantes gaudium:

Mulieres o tremulae,
In Galilaeam pergite,

Discipulis hoc dicite,
Quod surrexit rex gloriae.

Petro dehinc et ceteris
Apparuit apostolis.

In hoc Paschali gaudio
Benedicamus Domino.

Gloria tibi, Domine,
Qui surrexisti e morte.

Laudetur sancta Trinitas
Deo dicamus gratias.


English

Christ is Risen Today

Christ is risen today
For the comfort of all people.

He endured death yesterday
He suffered instead of Man.

Women to the tomb
Bring spices as gifts,

Search for the Lord Jesus
Who is Savior of Men.

See a white angel
Announces joy:

Women oh trembling,
Into Galilee proceed,

To disciples they declare,
That the king of glory is risen.

Peter next and the others
Appears to the apostles.

In this paschal joy
Bless the Lord.

Glory to you, Lord,
Who raised out of death.

Praise holy Trinity
We give thanks to God.

Anastasis (The Harrowing of Hell), 1310-20, fresco, Church of the Holy Saviour, Chora, Constantinople
In the Anastasis we see Jesus, descended into Hell (Sheol). He tramples  the gates of ‘Hell,’ and beneath them lie shattered locks and  keys. Darkly visible, Death lies bound and conquered, a  captive.  Grabbing them firmly by the wrists, a vigorous Jesus  forcefully yanks out Adam & Eve.  Adam is the oldest man in the  picture, the patriarch.  Following Adam are old King David (now there’s  an expert sinner…can you say Uriah and Bathsheba?  The kids know the  story), young King Solomon, and John the Baptist (the  ‘Forerunner’), whose long hair gives him away.  Waiting their turn behind Eve is her son Abel (the  ‘Protomartyr’) with his shepherd’s crook, and (I’m guessing) Noah,  Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Isaiah and Jeremiah.
