accompanying the dying

We shouldn’t be afraid of dying or death. If the time will come we can be prepared as the catholic faith teaches us and it’s just the beginning. I don’t like the word ‘death’ at all. This world absorbs but we are here just for a second. I’ve heard about the people who experienced the life after the clinical death. God brought them back, then everything was untold in a human words. I’m currently working at the elderly people, so during the hardest moments whilst accompany the dying I hope that Our Lady & Christ together with the Angels await there. I still try to support them through the prayers, holding a hand & sign of the cross on a forehead; imagining as they see my Christ already. They also need our prayer after death.

{ In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail for themselves; only we can come to their aid (…) their greatest torment was longing for God. I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in Purgatory. The souls call her “The Star of the Sea”. She brings them refreshment. } Faustina’s Diary 20.

I couldn’t be directly when my father was dying but I was spiritually connected. Accompanying the dying totally changed my priorities. The stages of agony are various but the faith helps me to cope with it. This really touches a heart but I feel a huge relief while I am on time with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

I dedicate this website to my beloved dad who suddenly passed away at 3:00 pm of December 25, 2014. He has departed for a long journey but I've heard that we can go away on forever to be always very close. Christ saved me a few yrs ago, so these notes are some kind of testimony conversion. "You don't choose a life. You live one." (from the movie THE WAY). Saint John Paul II has become my patron of life from he died on birthday, so Saint Mother Teresa is now marriage guardian as the 5th of September is our day of wedding. "The time is running away; the eternity awaits." (it is written on the clock of the church at Wadowice; the hometown of JPII). I'm happily married since 6 yrs. Even if, the storm will come I strengthen my imperfect heart by basking in The Sacred Heart. The prayer is an oxygen, so the soul breathes. If the coldness absorbs, lift up your hands - Christ will warm up & hug the soul. I appreciate these words of Fr Twardowski: Don't be afraid of walking on the sea and the unsuccessful life but in the ruthless times hold your head to the pillow because all that happens to us comes from beyond. I like 'I AM SECOND', I value the quotation: If you die before you die, you will not die when you die. So, do not forget about a beautiful motto of pilots THROUGH ADVERSITY TO THE STARS. Buen camino! God bless you. Anna.
