Death Be Not Proud: The Art of Dying in the Catholic Tradition

July 16 @ 6:45 pm

Join Br. Linus for a four-part Parish Study on the end of life and dying well. Each talk will take place in the Lower Church at St. Vincent’s at 6:45 PM and can stand alone, so continuity in attendance is not necessary. The talks are intended for people of belief backgrounds and stages in life. Meetings will be as follows:

  • July 9: Faith, Hope, and A Happy Death
  • July 16: The Art of Dying
  • July 23: Last Rites
  • July 30: Eternal Life

In our second session, we will explore the many essential, but non-sacramental, resources that the Church offers to strengthen and console the dying. The late medieval text, The Art of Dying, recently republished by the National Catholic Bioethics Center, will guide our reflections. We will conclude by applying its principles to the unique difficulties of contemporary end-of-life care.
