HOW TO BE READY FOR DEATH
Jesus teaches that death is like a door, once it is shut and locked you are either in or out. Podcast by Fr. Luke Fletcher, CFR. Listen to learn more! Matt 25:1-13 | James 2:17
Catechism of the Catholic Church:
1007 Death is the end of earthly life. Our lives are measured by time, in the course of which we change, grow old and, as with all living beings on earth, death seems like the normal end of life. That aspect of death lends urgency to our lives: remembering our mortality helps us realize that we have only a limited time in which to bring our lives to fulfillment:
1013 Death is the end of man's earthly pilgrimage, of the time of grace and mercy which God offers him so as to work out his earthly life in keeping with the divine plan, and to decide his ultimate destiny.
1021 Death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ.

Take a moment
As Catholics, we are called to be living reflections is Christ's love; but what many of us fail to see is that to live as a reflection, to live as another a Christ we must first have a relationship with Christ. In order for us to meaningfully evangelize and convey Christ's love for all of us we must first have that relationship.
So how do we actually build that relationship? Firstly, it's a gift that we must receive, but we receive it through prayer and reflection on sacred scripture.
Personally I found the concept of prayer difficult, but listening to reflections on sacred scripture from a community speaking from a place of abundance really help me understand the "why" and "who" of prayer which has since helped me build a prayer life.
This podcast has been an incredible resource in leading those reflections and sharing the importance of prayer in a way that I've never been taught before. I challenge you to not be complacent with your prayer life, there is so much beauty in our faith, keep learning, grow deeper in love of God
Rich and worthwhile
These talks are fantastic and really rich; it’s clear this man loves Christ authentically
