Facing the Death of Those You Love

Everyone you know and love is going to die someday. You will too, but… the thought of losing everyone else can sometimes be all the more frightening. This is a natural response to the ugly, “unnatural” reality of death, and those feelings of fear are not “wrong” to feel.

But, today, Fr. Mike implores you to take heart. There is yet one person who will never leave you.
