The great spiritual masters in the history of the Church have always made sure to keep their earthly mortality in front of their eyes. Some have done this by keeping a skull on their desk or near their bed, and taking time each day to meditate on the fact that soon they would die and face judgment. This doesn’t have to be a morbid thought, especially since no one who is born will get out alive. We all will exit through the same door. So, the question for our listeners is: Do you ever spend even a little bit of time thinking about your mortality and the short time we have here on this earth?
