Death is most likely the most important moment of our life, outside of the fact that we were born.
Moments in nature can be prepared for. Giving birth is a natural process and we have discovered ways that a woman and her husband can prepare for the giving of birth, to make it easier. . . . I am discovering that death, too, can be prepared for. People who have had a “near-death experience” can tell us some of the first things to expect when dying. I am a neophyte in this. I have not thought about the natural process of dying, so I am embarking on a research venture, asking God to lead me. Do you know anything about this?
Sisters Marguerite Barbein and Leonette Bursch have just died. I will pray to them to help me in this venture.
