Death draws nigh

Here's something to think about, courtesy of Blessed Damien of Molokai:
Truly the thought of the uncertainty of the morrow should produce in a soul most hearty contrition; but for us, Christians or religious, who look upon ourselves as exiles here below, and who long only for the dissolution of our body that we may enter our true country, there is, it appears to me, only joy and blessedness in the thought each moment we get nearer to th last hour of our life.
