When I lie dying, call a Priest. And at my Requiem Mass, do not "celebrate my life" (that's for the Wake or the reception afterwards); please pray for my soul, and for the only life that truly matters-- life with God forever. Remember that the Requiem Mass, like the Nuptial Mass, like the Ordination Mass, and indeed any Mass at all, is all about Christ, and not about me.

TIME Magazine Cover: Karl Barth -- Apr. 20, 1962 (Karl Barth was a Swiss Reformed theologian whom many scholars hold to be among the most important thinkers of the 20th century; Pope Pius XII described him as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas.)
"Without forgiveness, there is no future." (Desmond Tutu) Through His words and actions, Jesus makes it clear that forgiveness is at the heart of Christianity. On May 13, 1981, Pope John Paul II was shot and critically wounded. Two years later, the pope went to a prison to visit the man who shot him. Afterwards, he said: "I spoke to him as a brother whom I have pardoned and who has my complete trust."
