MFP 139 : The Honor of Accompanying a Soul to Eternity

   “This world is our ship and not our home” ~St. Therese of Lisieux

This past summer our family lost a beloved uncle, brother-in-law, and husband.  Alicia’s uncle passed into eternity at home with his wife, and Alicia and her sister Maria were privileged to be present for his death.  Death is a profound experience and one that we should all think about more.  Many of us are afraid to confront the thought of death though it is (obviously!) a part of everyone’s life.  Our culture influences us more than we realize and we can get lulled into thinking this world is all there is.  But this world is not our home!  In this podcast, we share the story of walking with them through this difficult experience, but also we share our reflections and the lessons that we have learned from them.
