Tuesdays July 9 – July 30 – Death Be Not Proud: The Art of Dying in the Catholic Tradition

Tuesdays July 9 – July 30 – Death Be Not Proud: The Art of Dying in the Catholic Tradition

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 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 first session, we will begin our discussion of this challenging but spiritually fruitful topic. We will look first at non-Christian ideas about “dying well,” before looking to Jesus Christ and the Resurrection. This study will be shaped by a distinctly Dominican and Thomistic emphasis on the goodness of bodily life, and will also consider the important role mourning plays in a Christian response to death.
