The last words of St. Anthony of Padua were, "I see my Lord."
UCatholic has published a list of the last words of 25 saints. May this page be a meditation for us as we prepare to soon celebrate the Feast of Christ the King and All Saints/All Souls Day.
- Are we in the state of grace and thus prepared for our death?
- Will we hear our Lord's words of encouragement, "Well done My good and faithful servant" or will we hear, "Depart from me. I do not know you."
- Do we sufficiently imitate the lives of the saints so that we may die like them in holiness?
All you saints and angels who see God, pray for us! Pray for our salvation. Pray for our deeper conversions! Pray for us to make reparation for sins and console our God who is much offended. Kyrie eleison!
