As Catholics, why should we embrace death?

We must embrace death because death comes to everyone and the sobering thing is that we don’t know when it’s coming. That’s why it’s so important to rememeber that we will die at some point (memento mori).

“The Holy Martyrs embraced death with a very ready will for the same intentions, I accept and embrace death with my whole heart, in whatever form.”  St John Eudes

In this episode
