REMEMBER YOUR DEATH: A LENTEN DEVOTIONAL - Sister Theresa Aletheia Noble

<BR> REMEMBER YOUR DEATH: A LENTEN DEVOTIONAL  - Sister Theresa Aletheia Noble


 
A Daughter of St. Paul is undertaking a revival of an ancient practice called memento mori – the remembrance of one's own inevitable death.

And now Sr.'s series of tweets has led to a memento mori-inspired Lenten devotional. Each day contains a refection written by her based on the liturgy of the day for all of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter. The devotional also includes a memento mori examen or review of the day, a daily moment of intercessory prayer, and daily reflections on death from the tradition, including the Church Fathers and many of the saints.

Lent is a time when we remember the death of Christ and the sacrifice he made to give us eternal life. This devotional will help you to meditate on your own mortality and the incredible gift of salvation in preparation for Easter. It is vitally important to the Christian life to remember the fragility of your life on earth - because one day you will die. 224 pages

Description
 
If you want something different and a little more intense for Lent, then this is the book for you. I was surprised how substantial the reflections were for every single day for the Lenten journey. In addition, the daily intercessory portion of the devotional really has you praying for people you wouldn't think about praying for. I especially like the Daily Examen of Conscience. I mean to do so in light of Remembering Our Death...phew!
Definitely something worth getting! Totally Recommend it!

Live Fully

We really don't know when the hour of our death may come, how long that death may take, or it's form. We've all watched friends or loved ones diagnosed with ______________ insert illness here, begin to fully live recognizing that we don't know which breath, this, or that, or one way far out in the distance will be our last. This isn't simply about fulfilling dreams, this living. Rather it's about the journey of discovering who we are in God, and how that relates to others. It's about moment by moment deciding that Sainthood, sainthood is for the Now, rather than after our physical bodies pass away. Live now.
