*Death...............May 8




"The body dies when the soul departs;
but the soul dies when God departs."

St. Augustine

This is a wonderful card. It helps to see all the help one can have at the moment of death: Relatives praying for you; the priest giving last rites; Holy Mary being the advocate to Almighty God; and even the guardian angel making your case. If I have only one of these to assist me at that moment, I will be so grateful.

I forgot to say thank you for sharing this comforting scene on your holy card.

Lee - So good of you to point out all those helping us at our death. I should say "new beginning" rather than "death". Thanks for your comment.

Esther - Scarry isn't it to think He leaves when we are in sin...I never thought of it that way. Thank goodness for Confession :-)
