I was listening to another podcast, TED Talks, and heard Matthew O’Reilly, a critical care EMT, discuss his observations in watching people transition at accident scenes from the living, to the dead. He noticed the need of the individual to be forgiven, to be remembered, while at the same time accepting their fate with peace.
I share my own very personal story of a close friend who did not accept his fate of death. He was angry. Through him, we learn more about Angels, Jesus, and the importance of our state of mind in determining our destination following death. We also learn that our prayers for our deceased loved ones have enormous power.
