…which, we sort of were

Assume your last day is tomorrow. What will you cling to, and what will you put aside?

    If tomorrow were my last day, I would not proceed with plans for my 1 week class next week at the Toronto School of Theology, “The Last Enemy: Death and Christian Hope.” Everyone I turn I see Eschatology. In all seriousness, I need to ponder this a bit. Maybe I would let go of all my plans and make sure I had a nice dinner-party with friends.

    I would cling to my family and friends. These are the people who shared and supported my mortal life and to whom I owe a debt that could never be repaid.

    Well, I wouldn’t floss tonight.

    Well, if EVERYONE’S last day is tomorrow, then I suppose I’d spend some time on the phone and maybe some travel to tell loved ones I love them, etc., and also Confession and Mass.

    If it is only ME whose last day is tomorrow, I’d better start cleaning up my house while I still have time. I don’t want folks to see my place like this! (Yeah, that’s a glorious last day, isn’t it? Spending all my time doing laundry and dishes and cleaning the bathroom!)

    Cancer has taught me this lesson, having had surgery nearly two years to the day ago for it. Memento mori is a lesson one would do well to remember and foster early and often; not morbidly but as you note to get one’s priorities in order.
