A Reflection on My Mother's Death

"I am not afraid to die..."

The greatest gifts my mother gave to me were her visions of Heaven at the time of her death as well as her deep faith in God. Through all her trials and tribulations, this omnipotent and merciful God was her strength.

As Mother's Day quickly approaches, I cannot help but remember some of her last words to me before she died.

"Kathy, remember I told you I was afraid to die?", she said.

"Yes Mom, I do.", was my reply.

"Well, I'm not afraid to die!", she expressed after revealing her visions of Heaven.

I was so happy for my mother... her greatest fear was no longer a reality!

Through His mercy, God had granted my mother the grace of a peaceful death.

My prayer is that God in His mercy will bring a peaceful death to all of those you love.

If you seek His will and ask for this amazing grace, God will shower His Divine Mercy upon you.

You need only ask... and you will receive.

God bless you always,
