The Necessity of Thinking About Death – Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble
How should we think about death? As a young atheist, Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble was deeply troubled by the meaning of mortality, and continued to wrestle with it even after returning to her Catholic faith and joining religious life. She decided to look at what Scripture and the saints had to say about death, and even started keeping a skull on her desk. Eventually, learning how to meditate properly on death helped her understand the relationship between this life and the next, and brought new perspective to her relationship with God.
