Thomas à Kempis Part 4: Meditations on Death

Meditations on Death is an eternity-focused and eternally relevant narrative that has at last been translated by the great Fr. Robert Nixon from the original Latin into the breathtakingly vivid English edition from TAN Books. St. Benedict says we should “keep death daily before our eyes.” How can we do this in our own lives? Is this frightening or freeing? Follow Fr. Nixon as he recounts the vivid experiences of a sinner nearing death, as presented in the writings of the great Thomas à Kempis.
