PODCAST | In Life and in Death, We Are Never Alone

[ View Transcript ]

In this podcast, Fr. Donncha Ó hAodha guides us to pray about the gift of the month of November. It is a great gift because it gives us the opportunity to focus on reality, to focus on the truth and love of God, and to recover our perspectives on our own journeys through time and to eternity.

This is important, as Fr. Donncha explains, because when we elevate and perfect all the bits and pieces that make up our day, seeing them within the horizon of eternity — one universal horizon– we will find the integrity and maturity that give meaning to all the aspects of our being.

In the month of November, especially with the Feast of All Saints and then the Commemoration of All Souls, we’re also reminded straight off that when we consider time and eternity, we’re not alone before this mystery; we’re not alone before this journey. In life and in death, we’re always accompanied, loved, and supported by our brothers and sisters who have gone before us, who love us, and intercede for us.

The saints are our good friends. They’re our brothers and sisters. We can be sure that we are always surrounded by the reassuring company and consoling presence of the saints and the souls in purgatory, and by the whole Church.
