A little more than two weeks ago, I shared the story of Fr. Everett Hemann, a Catholic priest diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer:
“I’m dying. But we’re all dying.”
“I’ve had a very good life. And based on that experience I trust the next few months will be the same. It’s going to be a good experience rather than something terribly difficult or negative. Long ago I learned that if you focuson the negative that is what will be emphasized.”
Deacon Greg brings us the news of Fr. Hemann's passing along with a video of his final interview, in essence, his last homily. Do check it out.
I think there's much there to learn from.
