Friends, this could be you.
Please! Develop the good practice of examining your conscience every day and going to confession regularly.
I implore you! Teach your children to examine their consciences and take them to confession, teaching them what to do and why.
Fathers, these people could be your parishioners. You will be called to account for the souls entrusted to you. Preach about sin, about the Four Last Things, about the Sacrament of Penance.
“A subitanea et improvisa morte… From a sudden and unprovided death, spare us O Lord.”
A sudden death can be a blessing.
A sudden and unprovided death – unprovided in the sense of having no recourse to the sacraments when you are not in the state of grace – is a horrifying prospect.
Make plans for, provide for, the needs of both body and soul for yourselves and those in your charge.
You don’t know when your death will come, natural or not.
