Death is not just about the body; it is truly about the soul. Let us be prepared every day, it must be constantly in a state of grace. At the moment of death, our state is locked in, either it is in grace or in mortal sin, and there is no changing it. Be prepared.


“Christ’s martyrs feared neither death nor pain. He triumphed in them who lived in them; and they, who lived not for themselves but for Him, found in death itself the way to life.” – St. Augustine of Hippo

"If we make every effort to avoid death of the body, still more should it be our endeavour, to avoid death of the soul. There is no obstacle for a man who wishes to be saved, other than negligence and laziness of soul." - St. Anthony Abbot

"He seemed to me, a very foolish man and very wretched, who will not increase his understanding while he is in the world and ever with and long to reach that endless life, where all shall be made clear." - St. Alfred the Great

“Live so as not to fear death. For those who live well in the world, death is not frightening but sweet and precious.” – St. Rose of Viterbo

"When it is all over, you will not regret having suffered: rather, you will regret, having suffered so little and suffered that little so badly." St. Sebastian Valfre

"For the wages of sin is death. But the grace of God, life everlasting, in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23

"Life is passing, Eternity draws nigh: soon shall we live the very life of God." - St Therese of Lisieux

"One life is all we have, and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying." - St. Joan of Arc

"The best way to prepare for death is to spend every day of life as though it were the last." - St. Philip Neri

"My brother, give yourself to God before death come upon you. Detach yourself instantly from everything which removes, or can remove, you from God. Let us instantly renounce the goods of this earth, before death strips us of them by force." - St. Alphonsus Ligouri

What is it that renders death terrible? Sin! We therefore fear sin, not death!" - St. Alphonsus Ligouri

"One of the greatest causes of the distress and anguish of the careless Christian at the hour of death, is the remembrance of the bad use he has made of the time in which he ought to have acquired merits for heaven, and in which he has accumulated merits for hell." - St. Alphonsus Ligouri

“Let us have charity and humility, and give alms, for almsgiving cleanses our souls from the filth of sin. At death we lose all that we have in this world, but we take with us charity and the alms deeds we have done, and for these we shall receive a great reward from God.” - St Francis of Assisi
