A prayer book to help you to meditate on your death and all the Last Things in order to live for heaven. Meditation on the Last Things—death, judgment, hell, and heaven—is not a dark and depressing practice. Rather, the practice is hopeful and life changing. It will help you to take stock of your life, grow closer to God, and to live with renewed purpose and fervor. May this practice open your heart to the work God wants to do in you and through you before your last day on earth, whenever that day might be.
What started as a series of tweets has led to a memento mori-inspired Lenten devotional. Each day contains a reflection written by Sr. Theresa Aletheia based on the liturgy of the day for all of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter day. The devotional also includes a memento mori examen (or review of the day), a daily moment of intercessory prayer, and daily reflections on death from the tradition, including the Church Fathers and many of the saints. Prompts are provided for journaling that can be used along with the Remember Your Death: Memento Mori Journal.
Discover in this writing journal the ancient tradition of memento mori encouraged by Scripture and the saints. Find inspiration in the quotes on each page and space to value each unrepeatable moment of your life. Featuring an introduction to memento mori and a compilation of prayers at the end, this journal will help you to remember death daily so as to truly live.
*Can be used by itself or alongside the Lenten devotional, which has journaling prompts
“The Memento Mori journal helped me keep things in perspective: that yes, we’ll all die, which makes what we do on earth more important, not less. Our time on earth is short and we should be continuously striving for sainthood. The Memento Mori journal has been a daily reminder of that!”Claire Swinarski, author of Girl, Arise!
