"How happy when they die must be those who have lived heroically every minute of their life! I can assure you it is so, because I have seen the joy of those who have prepared themselves for many years, with calm impatience, for this encounter." (Furrow, 893)
 
 
Wow, isn't this something to really think about?  Living "heroically every minute"....I too believe and have seen those who have done it, and are doing it now.  (I'm not sure I can be counted among them!).  But what excellent examples.  Oh, how we need these examples!  Living examples that "live it", walk the walk, not just talk it.  How much we can learn by watching the thoughtful footsteps placed by these heroic others living for Christ, preparing to meet him face to face.
 
St. Josemaria Escriva, pray for us!
