Just south of the Croatian city of Dubrovnik lies the village of Cavtat. There once were two very rich families living here. A woman was born into one and married into the other. She commissioned the great sculptor Mestrovich to build a family mausoleum. Before it was finished, her father, mother and brother all suddenly died. Then she died, too. She is remembered for this splendid structure, certainly the most beautiful in Cavtat, and for what she said to the builder Mestrovich. “Make me immortal,” she said. Of course, only God can make us immortal; and He has. More than that, He has given us eternal life.
